The Immediate-past governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, has been released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), this is coming one week after he was arrested by the anti-graft agency, while on his way to catch a flight to the United States of America.
Obiano was on Monday granted bail, with stringent conditions.
Unable to meet some of the conditions, Obiano was held by the EFCC, while his friends and associates tried without success to secure his release.
Worried by the development, the leadership of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), reportedly met with some leaders from Anambra State to intervene.
It was gathered that Obiano finally met the conditions on Wednesday evening, after which he was released to members of his family.
It was reported that Obiano’s “passport was seized by the anti-graft agency as part of his bail conditions” to prevent him from jumping bail. He is also expected to report regularly at the anti-graft agency’s office for further grilling.
The former governor Willie Obiano was arrested last Thursday at about 8:30pm by the anti-graft agency at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos a few hours after he left office and handed over to Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo as Anambra State governor.
