On the controversial arrest of the CEO of the Innoson Motors, Innocent Chukwuma, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has upon his release questioned his arrest, saying he was humiliated for no just cause.
Reacting to the incident, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said he has not been briefed about the matter, though Mr. Chukwuma and a commercial bank, GTBank, are having pending issues in court.
AGF said this while responding to State House correspondents yesterday after the prolonged Federal Executive Council meeting which started Wednesday.
EFCC had arrested Mr. Chukwuma two days ago, took him to Abuja alleging he refused to honour invitation from the agency but he denied.
Malami said: “Well in all sincerity I wasn’t privy to facts that led the stated arrest. I have not been formally briefed by the relevant agencies.
“One thing I know about Innoson is the fact that there has been a pending case between him and GTBank which case is pending in court and is being prosecuted accordingly. Other than that, I am not privy to the fact and circumstances that led to the alleged arrest yesterday (Wednesday). So until I am briefed by the relevant agencies, I am not in the clear position to make any disclosures relating to that.”
