Our attention has been drawn on a tweet by EFCC on its official Twitter handle claiming that the Gestapo kind of arrest of Dr. Innocent Chukwuma (OFR) today at his Enugu residence was because he didn’t honor an invitation from the commission sent to him, Brand Spur NG reports.

This claim by the commission is not factual and it tends to mislead the public and bring the personality and character of Dr. Innocent Chukwuma to disrepute. Hence we want to state the true position so as to inform the general public the truth about this matter.

EFCC never at any time invited Dr. Innocent Chukwuma either in writing or through any other means. We are aware that EFCC investigated GTB complaint against Innoson in 2012.
