The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano.
The wife of the former Governor, Ebelechukwu Obiano was also released by the anti-graft agency.
This is coming after the EFCC arrested Obiano and his wife in Lagos State shortly after he handed over power to Prof. Charles Soludo as the new governor of Anambra.
Obiano was nabbed along with his wife at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos, while trying to escape to Houston, Texas in the United States of America (USA).
But they have been released by the anti-graft agency after they were intercepted at the airport.
Meanwhile, details of why Obiano and his wife were arrested in the first place were still sketchy at the time of filing this report.
However, the EFCC had said the former Anambra State Governor had been on their watchlist prior to Thursday’s hand over of power to Soludo.
It is not yet clear if Obiano and his wife would still be allowed to proceed out of the country following their release by the EFCC.
