Okorocha To Miss APC Convention As Court Rejects Bail Plea



I'm Destined To Win 2023 Presidential Election - Okorocha

Former Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha was on Friday refused bail by a Federal High Court in Abuja. The court refused the bail application pending the determination of a suit he filed against the Federal Government.

Justice Inyang Ekwo declined to compel the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to release him on bail.

Okorocha representing Imo West in the Senate had filed an ex-parte application in which he predicated his bail request on the ground that he is a presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressive Congress APC and that his political ambition would be jeopardized unless granted bail.

Justice Ekwo in a brief ruling on the ball application said he was not inclined to admit him to bail.
