Steve Asimobi, the counsel for the embattled former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, said his client was still in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission despite meeting his bail conditions.
Asimobi spoke to our correspondent at about 09:00 pm, Tuesday night.
Asimobi said, “This is lawlessness taken too far. We have met the bail conditions, and the judge has written a note to the EFCC to release Senator Rochas Okorocha, but the anti-graft agency has refused to release him, claiming that the person in charge was not on seat.”
Meanwhile, supporters of the embattled senator showed up late Tuesday night at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel venue of the All Progressives Congress presidential screening.
The restless delegation strolled in at about 8:45pm, saying they were there to show solidarity for the embattled aspirant, who, they claimed, would still make an appearance at the screening tonight.
