Court refuses to grant Okorocha’s plea to stop EFCC, panel probes on him

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, refused to grant Rochas Okorocha, ex-Imo State Governor, an order restraining the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the state panel from investigating him.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed turned down the request after listening to counsel to Okorocha, Oba Maduabuchi (SAN).

The lawyer had told the court that since the defence counsel asked for an adjournment, the court should make an order stopping the parties in the suit from going ahead with the probe.

Mohammed held that it would be of no use to grant a restraining order, since Madu had undertaken to tell the parties not to go ahead with the probe.

Mohammed adjourned the matter until July 14 for hearing.
