Why we arrested ex-Gov Obiano – EFCC


Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has stated that it’s operatives arrested the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, a few hours after handing over power to his successor, Charles Soludo because he has been on their watch list.

Obiano, who handed over to Soludo earlier on Thursday, was arrested at about 8:33 p.m. at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos while heading to the United States.

Speaking with newsmen on Friday morning, the Commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said Obiano’s arrest followed several months of his being on the watch list of the agency prior to the inauguration on Thursday but had immunity as a sitting governor.

“Obiano has been on our watchlist for sometime now. He had immunity as a governor and that is why we could not arrest him before now.

“Today he lost the immunity and was traveling out of the country before we finally arrested him,” Uwajaren said when asked why Obiano was arrested.
