Just In: EFCC Arrests Obiano’s Wife

Eberechukwu Obiano.

Wife of the former governor of Anambra State, Eberechukwu Obiano has detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Vantage News learnt that Eberechukwu  who has been under investigation for alleged fraud, is currently in the custody of the commission in Abuja.

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, said he was not aware of the former First Lady’s arrest and promised to find out but he did not respond to further inquiries.

The latest development is coming about a month after her husband Willie Obiano was arrested at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, as he was preparing to board a flight to Houston, the United States, hours after handing over to his successor, Soludo.

He was subsequently moved to Abuja the following day and quizzed over alleged misappropriation of public funds, including, N5 billion Sure-P and N37 billion security vote which was withdrawn in cash.
