The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, refused to grant Rochas Okorocha, ex-Imo State Governor, an order restraining the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the state panel from investigating him.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed turned down the request after listening to counsel to Okorocha, Oba Maduabuchi (SAN).

The lawyer had told the court that since the defence counsel asked for an adjournment, the court should make an order stopping the parties in the suit from going ahead with the probe.

J. M. Madu, counsel to 2nd to 48th defendants interjected that the probe panel had not commenced sitting.

Counsel to the 1st defendant, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was not in court.
