THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested the immediate past governor of Anambra State, Mr Willie Obiano, at the Lagos International Airport at about 8pm, while he was trying to leave the country for Houston, Texas in the United States of America (USA).

Although details of the former governor’s arrest are sketchy as at press time, the anti-graft agency’s action may not be unconnected with financial impropriety while in office.

EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed the arrest.

There were media reports since late last year that the EFCC had placed the then governor of Anambra State on a watch list, a move which the state government had described then as laughable.
