EFCC arrests ex- Akwa Ibom AG, Nwoko

A former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Akwa Ibom State, Uwemedimo Nwoko, has been arrested over money laundering charges by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This comes after allegations that Nwoko, in cohort with Paul Usoro (SAN), a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), converted a N1.410bn property of the Government of Akwa Ibom State.

Operatives of the Uyo Zonal Office caught up with the former AG Uyo on Tuesday having allegedly been on the lam for over two years.

The EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest, adding that he would be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.

Nwoko’s arrest comes hours after a former governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Rochas Okorocha, was nabbed by the anti-graft agency for alleged N7.9bn money laundering.
