The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has given reasons for the arrest of Innocent Chukwuma, the chairman of Innoson Motors.

Mr Chukwuma was arrested at about 11am at his Savage Crescent, GRA Enugu residence onTuesday.

A statement by the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said the arrest followed Mr Chukwuma’s 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.

“Chukwuma rather than  honoring  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,” the statement added.
