EFCC GRANTS EX-ANAMBRA GOV, OBIANO ADMINISTRATIVE BAIL

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has granted ex-Anambra Governor Willie Obiano administrative bail after spending four nights in custody.

EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, who disclosed this to journalists on Monday in Abuja, said Obiano was cooperating with the commission to perfect the bail conditions.

Bawa who explained that the commission was waiting for him to perfect his bail conditions, refuted reports claiming Obiano’s arrest and investigation was politically motivated.
