Finally, EFCC Transfers Obíano To Abuja From Lagos

LAGOS – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has moved former State Governor, Mr Willie Obiano to after he was in Lagos on Thursday night.

The spokesperson for the commission, Mr Wilson Uwujiaren, confirmed this when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on in Lagos.

“The ex-governor was in Lagos, but was moved to this morning (Friday),” Uwujiaren said.

The commission busted Obiano at about 8.30p.m., on Thursday, at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, on his way to Houston, Texas, U.S after handing over to his successor, Governor Charles Soludo.

The commission’s spokesperson said that Obiano had been on the EFCC’s watch list for some months, adding that his immunity as a governor prevented his arrest until he handed over to his successor.

Uwujiaren said the commission had requested the Nigeria Immigration Service to provide information on the former governor’s movement out of the country from airports, or other points of exit from the country.

NAN reports however, that the EFCC has yet to release details of Obiano’s offence. (NAN)
