Chukwuma: Innoson faults EFCC claims, insists Commission misleading public

The management of Innoson Group Motors has faulted the claims by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) on the reasons for arresting the company chairman, Dr Innocent Chukwuma in Enugu, Tuesday morning, reports ITRealms.

Reacting to the reasons given by gestapo kind of arrest of Dr. Chukwuma by EFCC, the Head Corporate Communications at Innoson Group, Cornel Osigwe, told ITRealms that at no time was Chukwuma invited by the Commission.

Innoson said that this claim by the commission is not factual and tends to mislead the public and bring the personality and character of Dr Innocent Chukwuma to disrepute, insisting that they want to state the true position so as to inform the general public the truth about this matter.

The company in a press statement noted that “EFCC never at any time invited Dr Innocent Chukwuma either in writing or through any other means. We are aware that EFCC investigated GTB complaint against Innoson in 2012.

“During the investigation he was invited and he honoured the invitation. After the investigation EFCC filed a charge against him at Lagos State High Court.

“The charge was subsequently struck out. However Dr Innocent Chukwuma and Innoson Nigeria Ltd appealed against the order striking out the case on the basis that it ought to be dismissed and not struck out.

“The appeal - appeal no. Ca/l/1330cm/2017 is till date still pending at the Court of Appeal Lagos division. Till date, EFCC never invited Dr Innocent Chukwuma again,” he said.

Osigwe, maintained that at the time of going to the press, they do not know formally, on what offence Dr. Chukwuma was arrested or being detained for.

“On this recent arrest, Dr Innocent Chukwuma has not been told officially the purpose of his arrest and he demands to know why,” he asked.
