Rochas Okorocha, who yesterday handed over the governorship seat to Emeka Ihedioha, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Also arrested is his wife, Nkechi Okorocha, as well as Gerald Okorocha and Okey Okorocha.
His Eastern Palm University was also sealed off by the anti-graft agency.
While handing over yesterday, Okorocha spoke of an ongoing conspiracy to arrest and try him.
“As I walk out of this government house, let no on fight me and I will not fight anybody.
“When you remove this seal of governance off my face, you will see the real Rochas. The real Rochas is still asleep, if not bigger than the governor, so let no one fight me and I will not fight anybody.”
“Why I say so is there seems to be a gang up and conspiracy to hold me down politically but I don’t think they can hold me down politically because what God has ordained must surely come to pass. I will leave you for good and I will wish you well,” Okorocha stated.
