Obiano arrested by EFCC enroute Texas - ITREALMS

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday night arrested former Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport Lagos.

Obiano, who has been on the Commission’s watchlist, was arrested at about 8.30pm.
He was reportedly on his way out of the country to Houston, Texas in the United States.

ITREALMS gathered that last November, the EFCC had placed Obiano on a watchlist.

The EFCC had requested the Nigeria Immigration Service to inform it anytime the Governor is travelling out of the country from any of the international airports, as well as other points of entry and exit.

It is, however, not clear why the anti-graft agency placed the governor on a watchlist.

Sources told Channels Television that the move was an indication that the agency may have been discreetly investigating the governor and possibly have intelligence that he was planning to escape after handing over power to his successor, Professor Charles Soludo, on March 16, 2022.
