On February 10, 2020, Mr Dikeocha Chukwuebuka posted pictures of an open-air detention centre and alleged that it was the EFCC Zonal Office in Port Harcourt.

In the post that subsequently went viral, he tagged the Rivers state governor, EFCC and Segalink, a popular activist.

The EFCC has arrested Mr Dikeocha Chukwuebuka for posting the picture left and claiming it was the Port Harcourt Zonal office of the agency

However, the EFCC responded by branding his post “fake picture” and has now arrested him over those pictures.

The Port Harcourt Zonal Head of the Commission, Mr Usman Imam announced the arrest while briefing newsmen. Apparently, the EFCC arrested Mr Dikeocha on Wednesday at about 4 pm.

Mr Usman said, “the tweet was the most embarrassing moment for the Commission, given that the ‘fake news’, represented the very opposite of what the EFCC stands for, as far as care of detainees is concerned”.

“I want to assure the suspect and indeed the media, that the Commission will follow through this investigation and ensure that justice is served in accordance with the law,” he added.
