The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has brought the former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha before a Federal High Court in Abuja for arraignment over N2.9B corruption charges.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential aspirant was driven to the court premises at about 8:45 a.m. and was immediately led to the courtroom.
Some of his family members and political associates who are in court ahead of his arrival could not get direct access to him due to heavy security mounted around him.
His lead counsel, Mr. Kehinde Ogunwumiju, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, also arrived in court with other lawyers.
At the time of this report, Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo who is to handle the case is being awaited in the court.
However, the court Registrar and other workers were already seated.
