The
business man who runs a local auto assembly plant was arrested on Tuesday
December 19, 2017 at his Enugu residence, following his refusal to respond to
invitations by the Commission, after initially being granted administrative
bail by the Commission, while his surety could also not be found.
According
to the EFCC, the industrialist resisted arrest and stirred controversy by
bringing six truck-loads of thugs to block the entrance to his Plot W1,
Industrial Layout, Abakaliki Road, Emeni, Enugu, home.
He was arrested at about 11 am on Tuesday morning at his residence in Enugu.
The company, in a tweet, accused EFCC officials of storming the residence and arresting Chukwuma “like a common criminal without any prior invitation”.
But the anti-graft agency denied the claim, insisting that the Innoson boss failed to honour a prior invitation and accused him of jumping bail.
“His arrest followed his refusal to honour invitation by the commission having earlier jumped an administrative bail granted him in a case being investigated by the Capital Market and Insurance Fraud Unit of the Commission’s Lagos office,” a statement by EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, read.
“Chukwuma rather than honouring invitation by the EFCC, mobilised six truck-loads of thugs pretending to be staff of his company to his residence, where they manhandled EFCC operatives.”
According to the statement, it took reinforcement from the Enugu office of the EFCC to arrest the industrialist.
