The former Anambra Governor, Mr. Willie Obiano busted at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, on his way to Houston, Texas, U.S has been moved to Abuja.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) spokesperson, Mr Wilson Uwujiaren, confirmed this on Friday in Lagos.

“The ex-governor was arrested in Lagos, but was moved to Abuja this morning (Friday),” Uwujiaren said.

The commission however, is yet to release details of Obiano’s offence.

The commission’s spokesperson said that Obiano had been on the EFCC’s watch list for some months, adding that his immunity as a governor prevented his arrest until he handed over to his successor.

Uwujiaren said the commission had requested the Nigeria Immigration Service to provide information on the former governor’s movement out of the country from airports, or other points of exit from the country.
