EFCC frees former Anambra gov, Willie Obiano, seizes his passport


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday evening, March 23, released a former governor of Anambra State on administrative bail.

An official at the commission, who confirmed the development to Dailytrust, said that Obiano’s “passport was seized by the anti-graft agency as part of his bail conditions.”


Recall that hours, after he handed over to the new governor of the state, Charles Soludo, Obiano, was picked up by EFCC operatives at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, while on his way to the US.


He was subsequently transferred to the headquarters of the commission, where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N5 billion Sure-P money, N37 billion security vote, withdrawn in cash, as well as some inflated contracts.
