EFCC Rearrests Imo Finance Commissioner and Accountant General

By SaharaReporters, New York

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission yesterday picked up Imo State commissioner of finance, Deacon Okafor Chike John and the Accountant General of the state, Eche Ezenna  George.

The two   officials of the state were arrested relating to petitions sent to the commission alleging that a construction company JPROS International Limited was paid over N1 billion for a construction contract for which the company was paid the full cost of transaction even though work had not commenced on the project.

The contract led to the impeachment of the deputy governor in the state, Jude Agbaso. Operatives of the EFCC are grilling both officials and also plans further arrests in the state.

This is the second time the anti-corruption agency carried out detention of the two officials over allegations of fraud and abuse of office. The duo were arrested in January and granted bail but were never charged with a crime.

Mallam Mugu, Lamorde on Official Duty ...Nothing More!

Crass EFCC goon, Mallam Mugu, Aboki Lamorde once said he goes after criminals only on orders from The Presidency! Dumbo once said Govs will not sleep in their beds at night if he doesn't want them to ...any surprises here? They even sent the NSA after a young Commissioner in Rivers State. Dumbo should call off his mosquitoes and allow Govs to do their work in peace. Nigerians will "Shelltox" the PDP crime family in 2015 come what may! Imo House Speaker recently revealed he was approached by the Presidency/PDP with a N3bn bribe (in boi-boi Peter Obi's Anambra State mtg) to help impeach Gov. Okorocha, what do you fools have to say about that? How many petitions against the "ikiri of corruption", Ohakim, have EFCC disposed of so far? Lamorde is a Mugu with a Badge! Rochas is close friends with Amaechi, Okorocha mobilized Northern Govs that helped Rotimi fend-off Presidency-engineered attempt to sack him (Amaechi) as Chairman of Govs Forum ...connect the dots, Animals!

Goodluck jonathan should stop

Goodluck jonathan should stop disturbing Rochas Okorocha for Christ sake. what the hail is EFCC doing in Imo state. this is nothing but witch hunting. if EFCC is looking for what to do let them go and sleep. or they go to Abia state and ask the Governor what he is doing with tax payers money. If Rochas is not supporting Jonathan let jonathan find a way to solicit for supporters rather than witch hunt him.

EFCC will be arrested

Sanusi you have spoken the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. soon by the grace of God this fact will be unveiled.

GOOD WORK TO THE PPLE OF IMO

GOOD WORK TO THE PPLE OF IMO STATE WAT NEXT?

Owelle pls Imo children outside south east need an update

The last time I watch the governor of my state (Owelle) live on a TV station in Lagos he said if the EFCC can not capture the former governor of the state that he will not allow them to come close his government. So sir pls what is going on now the last I hard was your deputy governor now is???

Inspector General of Police is my house boy

Jimoh Ibrahim told us that our Nigerian Inspector General of Police was formerly his house boy and that is why his six mobile police security can never be taken away. How is this possible?

Jimoh said, I pay EFCC

At our Dubai conference, jimoh ibrahim told us that EFCC chairman, Lamorde salary is £75,000 per month which is paid by Global fleet every month. Nigerians, is this statement true? Can that be the reason, why EFCC cannot arrest or charge Jimoh Ibrahim to court for all the crime that he has been committing in Nigeria. Please, Efcc confirm? I work for jimoh ibrahim

Efcc should arrest jimoh ibrahim

Jimoh ibrahim stole pensioners money, evaded tax to the tune of N6billion, for which he was charged to court. Black listed as a bad debtor by CBN, whose debt has been taken over by AMCON. He also diverted N35.5billion aviation intervention fund. Why is jimoh a free man, while Efcc is arresting our commissioner. Lamorde you are a useless fool, if you cannot arrest and prosecute jimoh ibrahim .

ABUSE OF PUBLIC TRUST

I no longer envy myself as a Nigerian in the face of the naked rape and acts of consistent criminality unleashed on this Nation.
It is very unfortunate indeed that those that are privileged with public trust abuse it with reckless abandonment and impunity.
Let us pause for a while to ponder.Can you in all sincerity point to any one in the Nigerian political space that is selflessly in politics,motivated by the desire to serve?The Nigerian Common Wealth has become a cow that all is milking,and no one is caring to feed.That this 'cow' has not starved to death is a miracle.
We must hold our leaders accountable not only for their actions,but also for their inactions.We must demand good governance from them.
We must assist them to tow the line of reasoning and save them from the voyage of self destruction.
It is only then I can begin to envy myself again as a Nigerian.

EFCC Pls Recover Imo's 458m Naira. PDP stop Harrassing the Gover

Let the PDP wait for 2015 elections. Let the PDP allow the elected governor work for Imo state.
The ex-deputy governor ran to the PDP camp for protection at the onset of investigation of his role in the contract scam; instead of answering to the call by people of Imo state and/through their representatives to defend himself. If he had told the state House of Assembly if and how any other persons, including the governor, had entangled him in the contract scam, the story would have been different today; but he refused to appear before the assembly members. His affair is now being used to play opposition politics against the govt of Imo state. Imo started to welcome the EFCC shortly after the present state govt was inaugurated. So welcome EFCC, once again to Imo state, but please help us recover the missing 458 million Naira. Meanwhile, ex-gov Ohakim is enjoying himself.

PDP REFUSES TO ACCEPT DEFEAT IN IMO STATE

PDP has simply refused to accept defeat in Imo state.
The ex-deputy governor ran to the PDP camp for protection at the onset of investigation of his role in the contract scam; instead of answering to the call by people of Imo state to defend himself. If he had told the state House of Assembly how any other persons, including the governor, had entangled him in the contract scam, the story would have been different today; but he refused. His affair is now being used to play opposition politics against the govt of Imo state. Imo started to welcome the EFCC Welcome EFCC, once again to governor Okorocha-led Imo state, but please help us recover the missing 458 million Naira. Meanwhile, ex-gov Ohakim is enjoying himself.

@ Sanusi A Yaradua : Respect !!!

EFCC that granted a certain Enugu thug on trial leave to travel out of Naija. Where's Ohakim, the "ikiri of corruption" of Imo State today? The fuel-subsidy thieves, Pension scammers nko? PDP-BoT Chairman Anenih swallowed a whopping N300bn as Minister for Works, likewise Diezani, how many kilometers of road did they build? Doyin Okupe doped Imo/Benue States Billions of Naira but runs his mouth for Dumbo today. Abegi ! Akwa Ibom is listed as "Failed State" by the DMO while Akpabio buys/gives expensive toys with state funds, where's Mallam Mugu, Lamorde? Orji Kalu cum Ihejirika are ruining Abia, still, no EFCC. But in Rivers, the weight of almighty NSA has been brought down on a female Commissioner in mago-mago politics.

@ Clowns: Questions are: Are the roads being built? Compare Imo under APGA and 14yrs of PDP, don't write to "contribute" nothing! Imolites are sophisticated and will do the right thing at the polls if they're not happy with Okorocha. So, sharaaap!

EFCC PUBLISH THE NAMES OF ROCHAS CONTRACTORS AND THEIR DIRECTORS

Henry do not congratulate EFCC yet, just tell them to publish the names and directors of all the contractors used for Imo state contracts, the public would assist them to to identify those names that are Rochas in-laws, brothers, siblings, friends and partners.If they publish that, then you can congratulate them. Remember there are several non-existent and foreign companies which Rochas awarded contracts, which do not exist just to bypass CAC and EFCC screening. Zenith Bank paid some in dollar and Euro transfers. EFCC ask Zenith Bank to list all foreign wires made on behalf of Imo state. List all payments to Bureau de Change to wire funds for Rochas. The commissioner of Finance currently arrested has alot of dirty deals,enriched himself, received kick-backs in overcharged interest and fees against Imo state.

DOES EFCC READ ONLINE MEDIA REPORTS?

IF SOMEONE KNOWS ANYBODY AT EFCC, THEY SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO READ ONLINE MEDIA REPORTS. THEY OFFER INSIGHTS. EFCC INTERROGATORS MAY HAVE GOTTEN SOME FREE INFORMATION NEEDED BASED ON SOME POSTINGS AT SR TO ASK MORE QUESTIONS TO THE SUSPECTS. SINCE SUSPECTS ARE THE ONES PAYING ALL THE PAYMENTS WITHOUT DUE PROCESS,HOW COULD THESE ARRESTED GOVT OFFICIALS NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WERE PAYING WHEN THEY HAVE PAID ALLEGED BILLIONS OF SIMILAR CONTRACTS AND KNOW THE ONGOING PRICE PER KM.UNFORTUNATELY, WHEN EFCC HARASSES POLITICIANS IT IS ONLY MEANT TO GET THEIR OWN SHARE OF THE LOOTS. HOW MANY EX-GOVERNORS ARE BEHIND BARS? PLEASE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY DISBAND EFCC IT HAS FAILED

Imo man

Has any body asked why Efcc have not arrested Ohakim till now? I need some one to answer this question for me.
Did Ohakim not steal more money than any other governor in Nigeria and why has Efcc not arrested him?
Efcc is a tootles bulldog and a complete corruption itself whose only motives are politically motivated.

EFCC WILL BE ARRESTED IN 2015 BY THE GRACE OF GOD!

By the grace of God EFCC will be arrested in 2015 when government which has no blood relationship with corruption is put in power. EFCC will tell us why it couldn't arrest pastors with Jets? Why it couldn't arrest the Governor that spent billions of naira in hosting American musicians? EFCC must tell us why it failed to arrest a Governor spent billions in giving gifts to dramatists? Why EFCC couldn't arrest a woman that spent N 500 million in organizing thanksgiving party? EFCC should stop playing politics on behalf of PDP. EFCC cannot panic anyone in Nigeria. It is a useless organization being control by downtrodden corrupt vultures of this era. It is a rotten carcass in the filthy body of an evil object called PDP.

Rochas coming close to being unmasked

The big masquerade con man, Rochas Okorocha who have privatized Imo state to family and friends outfit will soon be exposed. Going by revelations of his foot soldiers - the commisioners, the beans will soon spill.

ROCHAS OKOROCHAS IS A SICK MAN AND MASTER OF DESTRUCTION

PLEASE CAN ANYBODY NAME ANY POLITICAL PARTY OR ASSOCIATION, WHICH ROCHAS OKOROCHA JOINED THAT HE DID NOT BRING ANARCHY,DESTRUCTION OR LEFT IT IN SHAMBLES?

THIS IS AN OPEN CHALLENGE (QUESTION) TILL 2015!

SR PLEASE ALLOW THIS QUESTION TO REMAIN POSTED TILL 2015 WHEN I WILL RELEASE MY FINAL REPORT.

IMMUNITY CLAUSE IS THE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THESE CRIMES

Nwa Imo is right Imo people will have the last work, but they may be in the respirator by 2015 to speak. Rochas commercialization must be stopped or there would be nothing left. There is no aspect of live in Imo that Rochas has not put his nine brothers/sisters, nices and newphews to manage. All his relations are all advisers milking the state. All the fake companies registered to handle all those fake deals are all conduits. The reason Rochas is running for second term is because of immunity clause. He knows that he has so much in the closet and must be arrested. Nigerians should cry loud for this immunity clause to be removed. Today Zenith Bank is doing all sorts of shady deals with Rochas and controlling the FAAC and JAAC of Imo state.The arrested Commissioner of Finace was hired from Zenith Bank and was account officer of Rochas. So Imo is in trouble hiring an armed robber, as OBJ labeled Rochas. The second time OBJ was right as a politician.

Good Work

I commend the work of the EFCC, all Nigerian Youths should encourage them to do more, there should be no sacred cow, they must step on toes.

WELL DONE IMO

Well done, Imo. Weeding out the really bad roots it would seem.

CHIKE OKAFOR ...YOU failure knocks ..Be careful..

Deacon Chike Okafor is a longtime Bank Rogue ..He perfected his skills working as a ZenithBank staff..There's a whole lot to investigate..Chike Okafor should be investigated not only on the JPROS contract , ..also on his activities @the Board of Internal Revenue..Its a pity he thinks he is smart..An adulterer clothing himself as a Deacon...God ll judge us ...

Dumbo should order the arrest of Doyin for Similar Crime !!

Ugly Dumbo, only thing he learnt from the Ota Monster is to harass state officials with EFCC. Yesterday, it was a Rivers State Commissioner over helicopter purchase, today, it's a re-run in Imo State. Two Governors vehemently opposed to his PDP's irresponsible plunder of our commonwealth. Flying Dwarf, Akpabio bought jets and panzer vans even as A'Ibom is listed by the DMO as virtually broke! Boi-boi Peter Obi didn't conduct LG elections throughout his criminal reign, even ordered his police goons to murder MOSSOB activists in custody, yet, Obi Oloshi remains protected from bootlegs. Mallam Mugu, Lamorde should go after obese Doyin who stole more from several states on construction contracts not done several years ago. This witch-hunting the opposition is stale tactics. If laws were broken, let the Imo/River States' legislators deal with it. Jude Agbaso and his brother are crooks and PDP goons, only Imolites can remove Okorocha at the polls, not Abuja thugs. Clowns!

More heads will roll

For those who think Imo State is a conglomerate for a few schemers who continue to betray the trust of the good people of Imo, this is just the beginning. You tend to forget how we got rid of the Otokoto boys, you forget how we made Ohakim a one termer and you forget so quickly that the Imolites detest power usurpation. Trust me after all the political maneuvering, we will have the final say. This is just the beginning. I bet you, more heads will roll from many unsuspecting quarters.
