Ekweremadu Describes As Fake News Reports of His Arrest By EFCC
It would be recalled that some online news media had reported that Ekweremadu was arrested by the EFCC and interrogated to explain how he came to own 22 properties in Nigeria, the United States, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.
However, Ekweremadu stated that the report, like others before it, represented only the “unholy imagination of the authors and their sponsors”
In a post vide his verified Facebook account, @iamekweremadu, the Senator said: “My attention has been called to a fake story making the round purporting that I was arrested by the EFCC. I could not have bothered about such spurious tales, but for the concerns shown by my friends and supporters through calls and messages.
“There was no such arrest and I have never been arrested by the EFCC.
“The public should, therefore, ignore this and other such hatchet reports and smear campaigns as they only represent the unholy imaginations of the authors and their sponsors”.
