The Chief Executive Officer of Innoson Motors, Mr
Innocent Chukwuma, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He was arrested at about 11am 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.
The EFCC said Mr Chukwuma “is currently being grilled by a team of investigators”. (NAN)
