Obiano yet to fulfill administrative bail


  • EFCC sanctions official for leaked video

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has granted the immediate past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, administrative bail. Chairman of the commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, made this known in an interview section with journalists in Abuja on the sideline of 5th Annual General Assembly (AGA) of the Network of Anti-Corruption Institutions in West Africa (NACIMA).

The EFCC boss, however, stated that the former governor was still in the custody of the commission because he was yet to perfect the bail conditions. Obiano, was arrested last Thursday by the anti-graft agency at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos when he was reportedly on his way to the United States of America.

He was subsequently transferred to the headquarters of the commission in Abuja, where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N42bn and inflated contract. Meanwhile, the commission has announced that the officer behind the leaked video of the ex-governor has been subjected to disciplinary action.

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a trending video showing the former Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano in the custody of the Commission, The Trumpet gathered.

“The Commission wishes to distance itself from the said video which is completely at variance with the established Standard Operating Procedure of the EFCC.

“A discreet investigation ordered upon discovery of the leak has revealed the errant officer behind the odious act and he is currently being subjected to appropriate disciplinary action,” EFCC stated.
