Uloma Nwosu, the daughter of former Imo governor,  Rochas Okorocha, has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had no legal justification to arrest him at his Maitama residence on Tuesday, May 24. Speaking in an interview with Arise TV today May 25, Uloma claimed the EFCC operatives failed to present any legal document or arrest warrant to justify breaking into their Abuja home and forcefully arresting the politician.

“The way they (EFCC operatives) had presented themselves did not show that it was something that was official, because there was no legal documents supporting their action. So you could say it was illegal battery or whatever we may call it. At this point, I was also scared as well, because it didn’t look official, it didn’t look like something that was done right. So of course we were afraid for His Excellency’s life, and that is why he requested something that was simple: ‘give us a document, give us a paper, a court order.'”she said She said no one has heard from him since he was arrested at about 6.30pm on Tuesday.

Story for the gods. They arrived peacefully in the morning to arrest him after a court order and after he had jumped court bail twice and failed to honour their invitations to their office.
They waited and pleaded with him from outside of the house non-stop for over 9 hours yesterday but he barricaded himself and others in the house which has bulletproof doors and windows, thinking he was above the law and they they’d go away once he frustrated them enough so he could go to APC screening - wrong! They had to show him he wasn’t above the law, even as a law maker. They would have accorded him and his property respect had he respected himself, followed them voluntarily without drama or resistance. Lesson learned hopefully.

How about your father evading court appearance after EFCC granted him administrative bail?? That was why they were there and the last time I checked, that’s legal.
