Eberechukwu Obiano, the ex-wife, governor's has been arrested by the EFCC.

Eberechukwu, the wife of former Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).


Mrs. Obiano, who is being investigated for alleged fraud, is currently in the custody of the commission in Abuja, according to a Punch report.

Wilson Uwujaren, an EFCC spokesman, said he was unaware of the former First Lady’s arrest and promised to look into it, but he did not respond to further questions.

The latest development comes less than a month after her husband was detained at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammad International Airport as he prepared to board a flight to Houston, Texas, just hours after handing over to his successor, Soludo.

The following day, he was transferred to Abuja and questioned about the alleged misappropriation of public funds, including N5 billion in Sure-P and N37 billion in security votes that were withdrawn in cash.
