Obiano have not been released from detention, says EFCC
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 newsmen, the EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, noted that Obiano was transferred to Abuja on Friday morning.
Obiano was arrested by the EFCC yesterday night hours after his handover to the new Anambra governor, Chukwuma Soludo.
However, reports emerged this morning that Obiano had been released from the EFCC custody.
But speaking to The press 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.
Uwujaren, however, did not state whether the ex-governor was arrested alongside his wife, Ebelechukwu.
