The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Port Harcourt Zonal office, has released a total sum of N5.714billion to the Imo State government, in three different tranches, out of the N7.9billion frozen in different accounts discovered in a Special Projects Account operated by former Governor of Imo State, Chief Rochas Okorocha. 

Usman Imam,  the EFCC Port Harcourt Zonal Head said that the money was released to the State government to pay salaries, pensions and meet its obligations to workers.

The former Governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has been told by the Agency to get ready for his day in court.

In a related development, Mr. Malaifia Yakubu,  Kaduna Zonal Head of the Commission charged the public to key into the whistle-blowing policy of the government and expose fraudsters in their vicinity.

"One critical stakeholder in the fight is the youth. However, most economic and financial crimes, especially cyber crimes are committed by young people", he said.

On his part, the Lagos Zonal Head of the EFCC, Mr. Muhammed Rabo, noted that youths are critical stakeholders in ridding the nation of unsavory and fraudulent practices and charged them to steer clear of such conducts.

Nigerians are also being charged to show more commitment to the fight against corruption.
