Ex-Gov Obiano Arraigned for Alleged 4Bn Fraud.

Former Anambra State governor Willie Obiano is facing nine charges of alleged N4 billion in fraud that allegedly occurred between March 2014 and March 2022, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice Inyang Ekwo of Abuja’s Federal High Court arraigned the 68-year-old today (Wednesday).

In response to the accusations of money laundering, Obiano entered a not-guilty plea.

He was sought to be remanded in the custody of the anti-graft agency by Sylvanus Tahir, the counsel for the EFCC.

Obiano’s administrative bail, which the EFCC granted him, includes two sureties who are both civil service directors and owners of landed properties in Abuja.

Justice Ekwo approved the administrative bail while also noting that Obiano is still in the FCT and that the court will soon receive his travel documents.

All travel documentation are with the court, according to the court, so immigration should be notified.
