The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday evening released the former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano on an administrative bail.

An official at the commission who confirmed the development, disclosed that Obiano’s “Passport was seized by the anti-graft agency as part of his bail conditions.”

As at the time of reporting, the spokesman for the commission, Wilson Uwujaren could not be reached.

Obiano was nabbed on Thursday at about 8:30pm by the anti-graft agency at Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, hours after he left office and handed over to the new governor, Prof. Charles Soludo.

He was reportedly on his way to the United States of America when he was apprehended.

He was subsequently transferred to the headquarters of the commission, where he was quizzed for days over alleged mismanagement of N5bn Sure-P money, N37b security vote withdrawn in cash as well as some inflated contracts.
