T.A Orji Looted Billions Of Naira Meant For Development Of Abia – Group Tells Buhari

A group, known as Abia Progressives Forum (APF) has reminded the federal government that the Senator, representing Abia Central Senatorial Zone and immediate past governor of Abia State, Chief Theodore Orji, looted several billions of naira meant for the development of the state during his tenure as the Abia State governor.


This is even as the group threatened to sue the FG and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), if they fail to include the name of the Senator in the yet to be released part of the looters’ list.

Speaking to newsmen, the the Chairman of the APF, Mazi Okechukwu Okwuonu, explained that the call for the inclusion of T.A Orji in the list was borne out of the desire to ensure that the monumental fraud which characterised the eight years of his administration in Abia would not go unchecked.

Okwuonu called for the prosecution of the former governor and his son, who is currently the Majority Leader of the State House of Assembly over alleged corruption.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war will not be complete if the Presidency and EFCC fail to beam their searchlight on Senator Orji and his cohorts.

“In fact, to set the record straight, the looting under his administration was unprecedented and massive. That is why Abians did not witness.
