He however promised to give details of the transaction and his encounter with the EFCC, once he was through with the angency.
Chukwuma was arrested on Tuesday at about 11:30am in Enugu where his staff allegedly put up resistance against his arrest but the EFCC operatives finally had its way and whisked him away to their Enugu office.
