The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested the chairman of Innoson Group, Mr.Innocent Chukwuma.
Spokesperson for the company, Cornel Osigwe, that Mr. Chukwuma was arrested at his residence in Enugu around 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday.
“His arrest is in connection to the ongoing case he has with GTBank,” Mr. Osigwe said by telephone.
Mr. Osigwe said his principal was accused of jumping bail, wondering how someone who was never invited by the EFCC much less being arrested would be accused of fleeing from the law.
“He was never invited by the EFCC, we challenge them to come forward with any evidence showing that he jumped bail,” Mr. Osigwe said. “This is GTBank using federal authorities to persecute an illustrious citizen who has done a lot to improve the economic development of this country.”
