The Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC), of making itself a willing tool towards harassing the people of the South-East out of the 2023 presidential race.


The group stated this in a statement issued today by the President-General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide, Oyc Okwu Nnabuike, in reaction to a 17-count charge filed against Rochas Okorocha by the EFCC over alleged looting of about N2.9 billion, during his tenure as the governor of Imo state.


The group insisted that 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 and advised the agency not to return to the ugly days when it was used to intimidate all opposition politicians.


Nnabuike therefore warned the EFCC to stop what it described as the needless harassment and intimidation of Igbo politicians simply because of the 2023 general elections.
