Outrage as EFCC arrests Innoson boss, Innocent Chukwuma on bank orders

Innocent Chukwuma has been reportedly arrested and whisked to Lagos.

News reaching BlackBox Nigeria have it that officers of the law attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested Nigerian businessman and Chairman of foremost auto company, Innoson Motors, Mr. Innocent Chukwuma.

The respected businessman was reportedly arrested after officers forcefully gained entrance into his home and bundled him away.

It was gathered that the EFCC arrested Mr. Chukwuma earlier today (Tuesday) at his residence. Investigations however reveal the arrest might not be unconnected to the ongoing loan controversy between the businessman and GT Bank who are his creditors.

Innoson Vehicles and GT Bank have over time had a running battle over financial dealings with the case currently in court according to sources in the know.

Workers protest

BlackBox Nigeria has further gathered that after hearing the news of their principal’s arrest, workers at Innoson Vehicles’ plant in Emene, Enugu state have staged a protest over what they are calling “the illegal bundling of Innoson to Lagos by EFCC organised by GTB.”
