Mr Willie Obiano
The Economic and Financial crimes commission, EFCC has arrested the immediate past Gov of Anambra state, Mr Willie Obiano at the Lagos airport at about 8 pm, while he was trying to flee Nigeria to Houston Texas in the USA.
Obiano, who has been on the Commission’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.
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.
