Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, of making itself a willing tool towards harassing the people of the South-East out of the 2023 presidential race.
This was contained in a statement by the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Okwu Nnabuike.
Okwu, who lauded former Imo Governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha for joining the presidential race, said it has become a norm for the EFCC to go after the people of the South-East once they showed interest in the presidential race.
The anti-graft agency had on Monday filed a 17-count charge against Okorocha over alleged looting of about N2.9 billion as governor.
Reacting, the OYC advised the EFCC not to return to the ugly days of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo during which the agency was used to intimidate all opposition politicians.
