Why Innoson Motors boss was arrested – EFCC
A well known industrialist, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, popularly known by his company’s name, INNOSON, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Chukwuma was picked up at about 11am at his Savage Crescent, GRA Enugu residence on Tuesday.
The EFCC said his arrest followed his refusal to honour an 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.
The statement, signed by the Commission’s spokesman, said Chukwuma rather than honouring the invitation by the EFCC, mobilized six truck loads of thugs pretending to be staff of his company to his residence, where they manhandled EFCC operatives.
The statement added: “It took reinforcement from the Enugu office of the EFCC to effect the arrest of the industrialist who is currently being grilled by a team of investigators.”
