The Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Innoson Group, Innocent Chukwuma, has been arrested by the operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC. The development was made public in a series of tweets on Tuesday by the indigenous automobile company, where it disclosed that its CEO was arrested without prior invitation. Innoson accused GTB of being behind the arrest, an allegation the company denied.
The company wrote via @innosonmotors, “GTB vs Innoson ‘illegal Arrest’ hundreds of factory workers from Innoson factory Emene Enugu protests the illegal bundling of Innoson to Lagos by EFCC organised by GTB. “Like a commando style, GTB uses EFFC to storm Innoson Enugu Residential Home to bundle him to Lagos like a common criminal without any prior invitation. In November, the company said the police had withdrawn the charges against Chukwuma. The dispute between the company and GTB began in 2012.
