EFCC confirms arrest of ex-Governor Obiano, mum on offence

The Economic and Financial crimes commission, EFCC, on Thursday arrested the immediate past Governor of Anambra state, Mr Willie Obiano, at the Lagos airport at about 8 pm.

The arrest according to some sources was to prevent the ex-governor from fleeing Nigeria to Houston Texas in the USA.

Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesman of the anti-graft agency confirmed the arrest but kept mum on the reason for his arrest.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed sources claimed it is connected to financial impropriety while in office.

The EFCC had last year placed Obiano on a watch list. His administration at the time described the move as laughable.

Obiano has never been indicted in any corruption since he assumed office in 2013.
