Obiano has not been released from detention. He has been transferred to Abuja – EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has debunked reports claiming it has released the immediate-past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this to Punch, said the former governor has been transferred to Abuja.
Obiano was arrested by the EFCC on Thursday night hours after his handover to the new Anambra governor, Chukwuma Soludo.
“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.
