How EFCC Stopped Willie Obiano From Escaping to Texas After Handing Over As Governor

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission yesterday arrested the immediate past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos.

Obiano, who has been on the agency’s watchlist for months, was arrested at about 8.30pm. He was reportedly on his way out of the country to Houston, Texas in the United States after handing over to his successor, Governor Charles Soludo.

Zebra News had reported last November how the EFCC had placed Mr 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 yet clear why the anti-graft agency placed the governor on a watchlist.
