Rochas Okorocha beats deadline, appears before APC Presidential Screening Committee after being arrested over N2.9Bn fraud (Video)
Former Governor of Imo State, Owelle Rochas Okorocha successfully beat the deadline for the APC presidential screening as he appeared before the Presidential Screening Committee ably headed by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun on Tuesday night, 31st May.
The Senator representing Imo West, on 24th May, Tuesday was forcefully whisked away by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged N2.9Bn fraud and he risked missing the screening owing to his inability to secure bail on time.
However, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday, May 31, granted him bail to the tune of N500million with one surety in like sum.
Okorocha seemingly rushed down for the presidential screening which was expected to end yesterday and successfully got screened to contest in the party’s primary election.
A video shows Rochas smiling and shaking hands with members of the committee after arriving for the screening exercise.
