Obiano finally leaves EFCC custody


After about a week in EFCC custody, immediate past governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has been freed.

He was released on Wednesday night since he had met all the conditions of the administrative bail granted him earlier.

One of the conditions of the bail is that Obiano should provide two sureties, who must be grade level 17 directors in the Federal Civil Service.

Also, the second condition is that he must provide two sureties with property in Maitama, Asokoro, or Wuse district of Abuja.

His travels documents have also been seized so that he won’t travel until investigation over his 8-year reign in the state is properly carried out.

You will recall that he was arrested and detained last Thursday after handing over power to his successor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo.

The agency accused him of misappropriating N37 billion security vote as well as N5 billion SURE-P funds.

He may be brought to court on charges bordering on money laundering as well as breach of public trust.
