Nigerians are reacting to the arrest of immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Obiano, who had been on the watch list of the EFCC but was being protected by immunity as governor, was arrested while trying to board a flight to the United States.

My source at the DSS says they trailed Gov Willie Obiano to Murtala Muhammed International airport and not “Lagos Airport” as reported by media outlets. Using surveillance they arrested him and handed him over to the EFCC. And yes his wife was with him at the time #kemitalks𓃵 pic.twitter.com/mDVtOR4Rkr

The arrest of Obiano at the Lagos Airport is not bad, however, EFCC has not been fair in their dealings with ex-govs. The same EFCC is yet to question former Governors like Amosun, Aregbesola et al years after they left power. Obiano could have joined APC to prevent this easily.

Immediately after handing over to Soludo, Willie Obiano headed straight from Anambra to Lagos Airport. To do what bro?
Why are you so scared of Nigeria after 8 awful years of governance? I don't care if that's how EFCC treats other ex-govs, they should treat mine that way. pic.twitter.com/UQqNB4Z6Sm
