An All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential aspirant, Rochas Okorocha has said that he is under hostage as EFCC operatives besieged his residence in the Maitama area of Abuja.

The former Imo State governor raised the alarm on Tuesday, saying the anti-graft agency invaded his residence without a warrant of arrest.

Speaking with Channels Television, Okorocha said, “I am under hostage I would say, the EFCC is at my house both the back and the front.

“I would say, I have enquired if they have an arrest warrant nothing, and I am supposed to be getting ready for screening.

“I don’t know what is really happening, It is unfortunate that this is happening here.”

Okorocha vowed to hold a press conference on the matter, adding that EFCC banned journalists from gaining access into his house.

“I am trying to address a press conference, Of course, the EFCC cannot stop the press from coming into my premises. They are inside my compound but the press is coming inside my house to interview me, they can’t stop them, he insisted,” he said.
