Okorocha was heard frantically saying these words repeatedly in prayer:

"Come and help me, my Lord and my God. I thank you, Almighty God."

Speaking with on Sunday, May 29 , on the actions of the EFCC operatives who destroyed Okorocha's roof in the bid to arrest him, a superintendent of the Nigerian police noted that by law the officers were right.

He noted that the law permits them to even bring down the house to get the APC senator or anyone who is considered a person of interest.

The high-ranking police officer said other family members of the former governor have made themselves his accomplices by not making effort to see that he submitted himself for arrest.

Even more, he explained that the law does not recognise what he called emotional sentiment in arresting a wanted person, nor do the operatives need an arrest warrant for such an operation, especially as the individual in question has refused to honour an earlier invitation.
