Recall that the anti-graft agency launched investigation into the financial activities of the Okoracha led-government.

But the outgoing governor, who is embroiled in a bitter feud with Oshiomhole, is blaming the former Edo governor for his ordeal in the suit he filed against the EFCC.

In an affidavit in support of the suit, Okorocha said: “Some of the supporters of Adams Oshiomhole at the time are currently very influential in the Federal Government of Nigeria which is controlled by the APC.

“These individuals, including the said current national chairman have decided to carry out a vendetta and revenge against the applicant, including instigating the respondents (EFCC) against the applicant upon their spurious conclusion without evidence that the applicant is guilty of corrupt practices as the governor of Imo State.”
