The former governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has finally met the administrative bail conditions earlier granted him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, almost a week after arrest.

A reliable source confirmed, on Thursday morning, that Obiano was released on Wednesday night .

One of the conditions slammed on the former governor was for him to produce sureties, who must be directors on grade level 17 in the Federal Civil service.

Another condition slammed on the former Anambra CEO was for him to produce two senior citizens, who must be landlords in Maitama, Asokoro or Wuse district of Abuja.

It was learned that Obiano’s travel documents had also been withheld to stop him from fleeing the country until investigation over his tenure is completed.

It will be recalled that the former Governor was detained shortly after his handing over the reins of power to Governor Chukwuma Soludo last Thursday.

The agency claims Obiano spent N37 billion as security vote and another N5 billion from SURE-P.

The anti-graft agency wants the former governor to shed more light on the N42 billion public funds.

He may be charged to court for money laundering and breach of public trust before being able to leave the country again.
