The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has granted a former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, bail.
This was revealed by the Chairman of the commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, on Monday in an interview with journalists in Abuja on the sideline of the 5th Annual General Assembly (AGA) of the Network of Anti-Corruption Institutions in West Africa (NACIMA).
Bawa, however, said the former governor had yet to perfect his bail conditions and as such, he is still in the custody of the commission. In his words: “There is nothing political about the investigation. You know what the EFCC stands for,”.
“We have been accused of media trial. But we will continue to do our investigation professionally.”
Obiano, was nabbed on Thursday at about 8:30 pm by the anti-graft agency at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos when he was reportedly on his way to the United States of America.
