EFCC Seizes Ex-Gov Obiano’s Passport As He Released On Bail

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has finally released the embattled former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.

EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed this on Thursday.

He said the former governor was released on Wednesday and that his passport is still being held by the anti-graft agency as part of bail conditions.

Obiano had been arrested on Thursday at the Lagos Airport by the EFCC while on his way to the United States of America, few hours after handing over to Prof. Charles Soludo last week.

The former governor was subsequently transferred to the headquarters of the commission, where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N5 billion Sure-P money, N37 billion security vote, withdrawn in cash, as well as some inflated contracts.
