21 March 2022
The Former Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano who was arrested hours after his handover to Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo at the Lagos International Airport has not been released by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has not been released.
According the Bawa, Chairman of Economic and Financial Crime’s Commission who spoke to newsmen in Abuja on Monday, he has not been released because he has not met his bail conditions, an official has said.
“He has been granted bail. But we await (when) he fulfils his bail conditions,” Mr Bawa said. He did not elaborate on the bail conditions.
Responding to remarks that the arrest was politically motivated, the EFCC boss explained
”There is nothing political about the arrest of the former Anambra State Governor, Wille Obiano,
“We are a financial institution and we know what the EFCC stands for; we investigate crime and we look at people who have committed a crime. And of course, we go to court and we have been doing that. And that is what we would continue to do.
“I don’t know what update you want me to give, because you have been accusing us of media trials, and you want me to say we are doing this and that. No, we (EFCC) would not do that. We would continue to do our investigation professionally as we have been doing.”
