May I use this opportunity to express my gratitude to fellow countrymen who
stood by me in this period of my Illegal arrest by EFCC.
Firstly, I want to thank Mr President, His Excellency, President Muhammadu
Buhari, GCFR for his believe in the rule of law. I thank also the various State
Governors who condemned my illegal arrest and fought to see my release.
I also thank the distinguished members of the National Assembly for their
support in voicing out my illegal arrest, the traditional rulers across the
divide from the North to the South, your support and contribution to my release
is well noted. Thank you.
To all the Media organizations, various human rights groups, the youths, the
*#FreeInnoson* social media crusaders and everybody who gave a voice to condemn
my illegal arrest, thank you all.
I still maintain that my arrest was illegal, as there was never a period that
EFCC under the leadership of Ibrahim Magu invited me for any reason. In due
time, I will tell Nigerians the whole truth about this matter. I intend to work
faithfully with the 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.
Once again, thank you my fellow Nigerians, with this high level of support and
love showered on me during this period of my travail, I reiterate my strong
resolve on the robust industrialization project of our dear nation, which will
make her truly great again. I thank you all once more for your support.
Chief Dr Innocent Chukwuma OFR
