Innoson Motors boss rejects bail, demands reasons for his arrest


Chief Executive Officer, Innoson Groups/Motors Limited, Chief Innocent Chukwuma, yesterday rejected his release from the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He was arrested by the commission on Tuesday after the EFCC said he had refused to honour its invitation, an accusation the company denied.

Recall that TheNewsGuru reported that EFCC had earlier announced his release on the condition of bail.

However, Innoson Motors revealed that the Chukwuma rejected the bail on the grounds that he had not been made to know the reason for his arrest.

The company made the disclosure via its official Twitter handle yesterday night, stressing that the agency must explain why he was arrested.

The tweet reads: “Innoson has refused his release because he is demanding to know the reason for his arrest,” it wrote.
