The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the evening of Wednesday 23 March released former governor of Anambra State Willie Obiano on an administrative bail.
An official at the commission, who did not want to be identified, disclosed that Obiano’s “passport was seized by the anti-graft agency as part of his bail conditions.”
The EFCC was yet to make an official statement as at press time.
Obiano, was arrested Thursday 17 March at about 8:30 pm by the anti-graft agency at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, hours after he left office and handed over to the new Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo. He was reportedly on his way to the United States of America when he was apprehended.
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where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N5 billion Sure-P money, N37 billion security vote, withdrawn in cash, as well as some inflated contracts.
