Chairman of Innoson Vehicle Manufacturing, IVM, Innoson Group, Dr Innocent Chukwuma, Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Innoson Motors, Innocent Chukwuma, yesterday  told members of the Senate Committee on Anti-corruption, how his family members were reportedly maltreated by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, when they arrested him last December.

Mr. Chukwuma said that his wife was slapped while his four-month-old grandson and staff members were tear-gassed by EFCC operatives after forcefully gaining entry to his house.

Enyinnaya Abaribe (Abia-PDP), had on December 20, a day after the arrest, announced at plenary that the operatives of EFCC slapped the wife of Mr. Chukwuma.

“Another incident happened in his house. The wife asked a question; ‘Why are you arresting my husband? What has happened?’ And they slapped her,” he had said.

Confirming this yesterday, the Innoson boss said the operatives, “swooped on my house like assassins. I do not know any thug nor do I have any thug let alone inviting or mobilising them to resist my arrest. Rather, given the way EFCC men entered into my residence, I thought they were assassins.”
