Rochas Okorocha Loses Bid To Stop Properties Confiscation

Former Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has failed in his bid to stop the seizure of his properties in various parts of the country by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, and Imo State Government as A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday refused to grant an order of interim injunction sought by a Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday refused to grant an order of interim injunction.

Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed held that granting the order during various challenges to the court jurisdiction in the matter will not be in the interest of justice.

He then fixed August 24 for the hearing of the challenge by EFCC and Imo State government that the motion on notice filed by Okorocha cannot be heard during court vacation.

Okorocha, now a senator representing Imo West Senatorial district in the Senate, had prayed the court to issue a restraining order against the EFCC and Imo State Government from further interfering and confiscating his properties located in various parts of the country.

He sought the order of the court to preserve his properties pending the resolution of ongoing court cases.
