EFCC Invited, Did Not Arrest Me, Says Udenwa


Former Imo State Governor, Achike Udenwa says he was not arrested by the Economic And Fianacial Crimes Commission, EFCC as widely reported in the media recently.

He said he only honoured an invitation extended to him the anti graft commission.

Read Full Statement:
Our attention has been drawn to the news making the circle about the arrest of HE Achike Udenwa and it is important to clarify some basic facts. His excellency was never arrested as he honoured an invitation by EFCC which is normal. He was never detained rather, the EFCC officials treated him with courtesy and respect and simply requested info on the campaign funding which he obliged.

The campaign fund for Imo state was received like all presidential campaign funds in the 36 states of the Federation. It was lodged in a joint account opened solely for that purpose.

There is nothing absolutely wrong with the EFCC invitation to merit the level of publicity stunt that followed. The EFCC officials were professional in carrying out their duty.

Once more , His excellency was never arrested or detained and the news making round that he accepted to refund the money is not true as the money was used for the purpose it was meant.
Most importantly, he is ever ready to assist the anti corruption agency to carry out their constitutional duty.
