Why We Haven’t Revealed Obiano’s Offence – EFCC

Why We Haven’t Revealed Obiano’s Offence – EFCC (Updated: 7 months ago)


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has opened up on why it is yet to make public the offence committed by the former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.

According to EFCC, the reason is because of its an ongoing investigation.

Recall that the immediate past governor of Anambra State was arrested on Thursday at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos.

Obiano was detained hours after he left the swearing-in of Charles Soludo as the new governor of the state.

There were claims that Obiano was on his way to the United States of America when he was picked up at the airport.

The spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren while speaking on the arrest of the former governor said it is not time to reveal his offence.

According to Uwujaren, “We are not giving that (the offence) out at the moment. The matter is still under investigation. It is also not correct that he has been released. He is with the commission.”

He further stated that newsmen would be informed when the former governor would be released from their detention.

The anti-graft agency had placed Obiano on its watch list since November last year.

The commission in a letter forwarded to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) dated November 15, 2021, requested the Service to place Obiano on the watchlist and alert the agency anytime he is travelling out of the country via any International airports and other points of entry and exit.
