Don’t Allow Obiano Escape – EFCC Places Governor On Immigration Watchlist

0

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano, on its watchlist.

The development comes nearly four months before the governor is expected to leave office as governor — he will hand over in March 2022.

According to a letter dated November 15 and addressed to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the anti-graft agency asked to be informed whenever Obiano is seen attempting to travel out of the country.

It is not clear in specific terms why the EFCC placed Obiano on its watchlist.

However, according to sources, the Anambra governor is under investigation by the commission.

In September, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Anambra had asked the anti-graft agency to probe the finances of the state in order to unearth “monumental deception”.

The Anambra APC chairman, Basil Ejidike, in a statement, had alleged that Obiano has been “fraudulently” using the state’s security vote.

“Anambra as a state has not recorded significant growth and development since the inception of Gov. Willy Obiano’s leadership,” the statement reads.

“To maintain existing developmental structures in the state remains unattainable.
