Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have besieged the Abuja residence of former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
The operatives arrived at the residence of the former governor in the Maitama area, to arrest him on Tuesday.
The anti-graft agency, according to Daily Trust, said Okorocha has been snubbing several invitations extended to him over alleged corruption against him.
The agency had on January 31, filed a 17-count charge against the former governor before a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The charge against Okorocha came hours after he formally declared his intention to run for president.
According to the EFCC, Okorocha allegedly conspired with others, including a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and five companies, to steal N2.9 billion from public coffers.
