The immediate-past governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, and his wife, Osodieme Ebelechukwu, who were intercepted at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, shortly after handover to the incumbent Gov. Chukwuma Soludo, Thursday, on their way out of the country were yesterday released after a brief detention.
They were said to have been on their way to Houston, Texas, USA, when the operatives of the anti-graft commission intercepted them over alleged money laundering.
Before their arrest, the ex-governor had been on the EFCC watch list, with Thursday’s end of his tenure and eventual handover to the incumbent Governor Soludo making the coast clear for his arrest, including his wife who was a suspected accomplice./SHARE THIS
