Operatives of the EFCC have arrested the former governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, after over six hours of a siege at his house.

He was arrested on Tuesday evening at about 6:30 p.m. at his residence in the Maitama area of Abuja.

He was arrested minutes after security operatives fired teargas to disperse protesters who did not want the ex-governor arrested.

Mr Okorocha was whisked into a white Hilux vehicle by armed security operatives.

Dozens of protesters had stormed Rochas Okorocha’s Abuja home to protest the security siege of the former governor’s house.
