EFCC places governor Obiano on watchlist

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed the out-going governor of the state, Willie Obiano on watchlist.

In a letter to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service dated November 15, 2021, the Commission requested the Service to place the governor on watchlist and inform it anytime he is travelling out of the country from any of the International airports and other points of entry and exit.

It is not clear why the anti-graft agency placed the governor on watchlist.

But knowledgeable sources said the move is an indication that the agency may have been discreetly investigating the governor and possibly have intelligence that he plans to travel after handing over power to his successor, Charles Soludo.

Obiano will handover to Soludo on March 16, 2022.
