Just In: EFCC places Gov Obiano on watchlist, puts security agencies on alert



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on a watchlist.

However, it is unclear why the commission placed the governor who will leave office next year on its watchlist.

In a letter dated November 15, 2021, and addressed to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the EFCC requested the Service to place Obiano on a watchlist and inform it anytime he is travelling out of Nigeria from any of the international airports as well as other entry and exit points in the country.

Obiano will hand over to the Anambra State governor-elect, Prof.Charles Soludo, on March 16, 2022.
