EFCC says Obiano not released from detention but transferred to Abuja


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has confirmed that the immediate-past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has not been released from detention.

In an exclusive chat with our correspondent, the Public Relations Officer of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, noted that Obiano was transferred to Abuja on Friday morning.

Obiano was arrested by the EFCC on Thursday night, on his way to catch a flight to the United States of America, hours after his handover to the new Anambra governor, Chukwuma Soludo. 

However, reports emerged on Friday morning that Obiano had been released from the EFCC custody. 

But speaking to The PUNCH via telephone call, the EFCC PRO stated that the reports were false and that the ex-governor was still with the commission.

“He’s still with the commission. He was even transferred from Lagos to Abuja this morning,” Uwujaren said.

More details soon….
