A well known industrialist, Innocent Chukwuma, popularly known by his company’s name, Innoson, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He was picked up at about 11 a.m. at his Savage Crescent, GRA Enugu residence on Tuesday, December 19.
His arrest followed his refusal to honor an invitation by the Commission having earlier jumped an administrative bail granted to him in a case being investigated by the Capital Market and Insurance Fraud Unit of the Commission’s Lagos office.
Chukwuma, rather than honoring 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.
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.
