drove himself to the EFCC’s zonal office in Enugu in an SUV with
registration number ENUGU CV 960 ENU and had  arrived the
anti-commission’s office at exactly 10:58 am.

Earlier, one of his close aides, Ikeji Asogwa, also reported at the commission with a vehicle marked ENUGU 06D-01EN.
Ikeji just completed his tenure as the Enugu State Chairman of the PDP.
According to the report, it was gathered that their appearance was in keeping with the conditions of bail granted them earlier by the commission.
Pioneer Chairman of PDP
in Enugu State, Chief Charles Egumgbe, who also served in Chime’s
government and was the chairman of the PDP campaign organization,
equally showed up at 10:10 am.
It was reported that
‎the EFCC had last week Wednesday grilled Chime for allegedly receiving
N450m out of the $115m (N23bn) disbursed by a former Minister of
Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, during the build-up to the
2015 presidential election.
During the
interrogation, Chime reportedly told detectives that he handed over the
money to the Secretary of the campaign office, Mrs. Rita Mba, who was
also the state’s Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Government
Affairs.
Chime, according to the
source, said that  the money was brought by two of his former
commissioners, Joe Nmamnel and Mrs Rita Mba, in company with the
Chairman of the PDP, Enugu State, Ikeji Asogwa, and Prof. Osita Ogbu.
