The chairman of the Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing (IVM), Chief Innocent Chukwuma has been arrested by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Enugu.
The operatives of the anti-graft agency as well as armed policemen had stormed the residence of the IVM owner located at Savage Crescent, GRA, Enugu as early as 7:30am Tuesday to effect his arrest.
There was however an initial resistance by the security men at the residence as they refused the EFCC operatives entry resulting in the firing of teargas by the policemen accompanying the EFCC men.
They equally cordoned off all the exit routes from the residence creating gridlocks as most people who were involved in early morning activities experience delays.
The operatives later succeeded in gaining access to the building after overpowering Chukwuma’s security men as they eventually took him away.
