Willie Obiano has been arrested by the EFCC At Lagos Airport
Willie Obiano, the former governor of Anambra State, has been arrested at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammad International Airport on Thursday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC).
Obiano was arrested at around 8.30 p.m. after being placed on the Commission’s watchlist.
He was on his way out of the country, according to reports, to Houston, Texas, in the United States.
The EFCC had asked the Nigerian Immigration Service to notify it whenever the Governor leaves the country via any of the country’s international airports or other points of entry and exit.
The reason for the governor’s inclusion on the anti-corruption watchlist is unknown.
According to Channels Television, the move indicated that the agency was quietly investigating the governor and may have information that he was planning to flee after handing over power to his successor, Professor Charles Soludo, on March 16, 2022.

Don Adinuba, the former Anambra State Commissioner for Information, had condemned the EFCC watchlist reports at the time, claiming they were politically motivated.
EFCC Arrests Willie Obiano
“Governor Obiano has four months to stay in office as the governor of Anambra State,” Adinuba said. “No one in Nigeria has the authority to override his constitutionally granted immunity, which protects him from criminal and civil prosecution.”
“The EFCC went too far in announcing its surveillance of him in November. We are not aware of any state governor who had up to four months in office before the EFCC sponsored media reports that he was under investigation.”
