Why Ex-Governor Obiano Is Still In Custody — EFCC Chairman 

The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, on Monday, explained why the former Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, is still in detention.

Bawa, who spoke to journalists on the sideline of the 5th Annual General Assembly (AGA) meeting of the Network of National Anti-Corruption Institutions in West Africa (NACIWA), taking place in Abuja, disclosed that Obiano had yet to perfect the conditions the EFCC stipulated for his release on bail.

Asked why the Commission has kept the former governor in its custody, beyond the period allowed by the Constitution, Bawa, said: “He has been granted bail and we are waiting for him to perfect the bail conditions and everything is going well”.

It will be recalled that Obiano was arrested at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, last Thursday, few hours after he handed over to his successor, Governor Chukwuma Soludo.

The anti-graft agency subsequently transferred him to its office in Abuja for further interrogation.

The former governor, who had been on EFCC’s watchlist, was among other things, accused of misappropriating public funds totalling about N42billion.
