The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has confirmed that the immediate-past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has not been released from detention.
In a chat with Punch, the EFCC Spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, noted that Obiano was transferred to Abuja on Friday morning and not released.
Obiano was arrested by the EFCC on Thursday night hours after his handover to the new Anambra governor, Chukwuma Soludo.
Speaking to The Punch via telephone call, the EFCC PRO stated that reports of his release were false and that the ex-governor was still with the commission.
“He’s still with the commission. He was even transferred from Lagos to Abuja this morning,” Uwujaren said.
