The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has brought nine counts of alleged N4bn fraud against the former Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano. The charges span his tenure from March 2014 to March 2022. Today, the 68-year-old was arraigned before Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja, where he pleaded not guilty to the money laundering charges.

Counsel for the EFCC, Sylvanus Tahir, requested Obiano’s remand in the custody of the anti-graft agency. Obiano, currently on administrative bail by the EFCC, has conditions that include providing two sureties who are directors in the civil service and own landed properties in Abuja.

Justice Ekwo upheld the administrative bail, specifying that Obiano must remain within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and his travel documents must be submitted to the court. Additionally, the court ordered the immigration authorities to be notified that all of Obiano’s travel documents are now in the court’s possession.
