EFCC frees Obiano, seizes passport

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Wednesday evening released a former governor of Anambra State on administrative bail.

An official at the commission who confirmed the development to our correspondent said that Obiano’s passport was seized by the anti-graft agency as part of his bail conditions.

The spokesman of the commission, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for comments when filing this report.

Obiano was nabbed on Thursday at about 8:30pm by the anti-graft agency at Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on his way to the United States of America.

He was subsequently transferred to the headquarters of the commission, where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N5billion Sure-P money, N37billion security vote withdrawn in cash and inflation of contracts.
