The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has discharged Nnewi, Anambra-State conceived Industrialist, Chief Innocent Chukwuma on safeguard.
An announcement by the office says the specialist who runs a nearby auto get together plant was captured on Tuesday December 19, 2017 at his Enugu living arrangement, following his refusal to react to solicitations by the Commission, after at first being conceded authoritative safeguard by the Commission, while his surety could likewise not be found.
The announcement to some degree peruses:
“Unfortunately the industrialist resisted arrest and stirred controversy by bringing six truck-loads of thugs to block the entrance to his Plot W1, Industrial Layout, Abakaliki Road, Emeni, Enugu, home.”
“This was after he initially misled the Police Command by informing them that his home had been invaded by armed robbers and kidnappers despite the fact that operatives of the Commission duly identified themselves to policemen guarding his home.”
“His unruly thugs encircled and manhandled operatives of the Commission who had gone to effect the arrest. Consequently, a distress call was sent to the Commission’s Enugu Office for reinforcement.”
“In all of this, the Commission’s operatives acted with decorum and civility. No one was manhandled or assaulted by the EFCC team, and not a single shot was fired, despite the provocation.”
“Chief Chukwuma and his brother, Charles Chukwuma (who is still at large), are being investigated by the Insurance and Capital Market Fraud Section of the Commission’s office in Lagos over matters bordering on N1, 478, 366, 859.66 fraud and forgery. The industrialist, among other infractions, allegedly used forged documents to secure tax waivers.”.
