The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested Eberechukwu, the wife of the immediate past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano.
The former Anambra First Lady, who has been under investigation, is currently in the custody of the commission in Abuja, and looks set to spend the Easter holidays in EFCC cell.
CHECKPOINTCHARLEY gathered that Mrs Obiano, who is running for Anambra North Senate seat under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, is being questioned for alleged fraud running into billions of Naira.
Recall that Ebelechukwu had recently courted controversy when she initiated a fight with a former Nigerian ambassador to Spain and wife of Biafra leader, Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, during the swearing-in ceremony of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as Anambra State Governor on March 17.
Her arrest comes barely a month after her husband was picked up at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, as he attempted to leave for the United States, hours after handing over to his successor, Soludo.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, had yet to confirm Mrs Obiano’s arrest as at the time of filing this report.
