The Chief executive officer of innoson Group of Companies, chief innocent Chukuwma said till he was left the hook, nobody had come to tell him what is offences are. ‘’I am here at the international Airport with you journalists, may be they had sent it via text, cut’in ‘laughs, but sincerely, I have not been told what is my offence, very sad. He said what he saw on the pages of newspapers indicting him of forged tax documents was a hoax and fictitious and nothing like that he submitted

 Innocent Chukwuma The auto manufacturer also denied that he was ever invited by the EFCC, noting that throughout his ordeal with the agency, he was never told why he was arrested and humiliated. He also confirmed that he was arrested like a common criminal and was taken to Lagos from Enugu in shorts and singlet. Fielding questions from newsmen at Akanu Ibiam International Airport on arrival in Enugu, yesterday, monitored by urban express news correspondent, the industrialist said he was yet to  decide on what he would do to the EFCC on his humiliation.  

 Chukwuma said: “I thank everybody, who fought on this matter. I was surprised that in the early morning, they (EFCC operatives)jumped into my house.   I thought they were kidnappers or armed robbers but finally, I noticed it was EFCC. Around 7:30 am, they said they wanted to arrest me and I followed them to their office and up till now, they have not told me what offence I committed.

“When I got there, they said I should go, but they didn’t tell me what I did. “EFCC under Ibrahim Magu has never invited me, nobody invited me, they just jumped into my house. If they invited me, I would have answered them because I am a genuine businessman. I am an industrialist, I don’t have any skeleton in my cupboard. “That’s why I asked them to tell me what I did, but up till now, they have not told me what I did. I said I will stay with them until they tell me what I did.” Asked if he was considering court action against the EFCC, Chukwuma said:

 “I don’t know for now if I will go to court against this unlawful arrest, but what I know is that they have not told me what I did. “I have never forged tax waiver documents in my life. I pay  all my taxes, I pay my duties;I am a genuine businessman; I’m an industrialist. “In due time, I will tell Nigerians the whole truth about this matter. I intend to work with EFCC on this alleged investigation, so as to clear my name, which has been badly damaged, and I will follow up this so-called investigation to its logical conclusion.” Crowd welcome Chukwuma at Enugu airport Following his release, a large crowd yesterday gathered at the airport to receive him with some of them carrying placards and singing praises of Chukwuma, as an innocent man. He expressed gratitude to President  Muhammadu Buhari, “for his belief  in the rule of law,” and to members of the National Assembly, for speaking against his arrest and condemning it as illegal. He also thanked the media, human rights groups, his workers and the general public, who condemned his arrest.
