Innoson Chairman Says EFCC Arrest Not Ethnic Linked, Thanks Buhari, Obiano, Others


NNEWI – The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Innoson Group of Companies,
Mr. Innocent Chukwuma, has said his arrest and detention by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), earlier this week has no ethnic undertone but purely business.

Addressing journalists on Saturday in his country home, Nnewi, shortly after his return, Chukwuma confirmed that EFCC was behind the arrest through the auspices of a commercial bank (Guaranty Trust Bank) that was deducting some money illegally from his account for over eleven years amounting to over N400 million.

He said that when he observed the illegal withdrawals, he consulted an auditor who tabulated the correct amount which the bank agreed to refund but later reneged.

According to him, the matter was taken to both the high court and court of appeal where he won.

The Innoson Group chairman expressed surprise that the bank could involve the EFCC to arrest him even when they were the one indebted to him.

He, however, commended President Muhammadu Buhari, Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, some Igwes, Emirs and Obas and other notable personalities and groups across the country for intervening in the matter.

The residence of the business mogul has become a Mecca of some sort as people trooped in their numbers to felicitate with him even as the business mogul welcomed them with a huge smile.
