The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed the outgoing governor of the Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on its watch list.

The commission, in a letter to the Comptroller-General of the Nigeria Immigration Service dated November 15, 2021, requested the service to place the governor on a watch list and inform it anytime he is travelling out of the country from any of the international airports and other points of entry and exit.

Sources closed to EFCC hinted that Obiano is one of several governors being investigated for graft and money laundering and the move is to forestall any attempt by the governor to flee the country before or after handing over power to his successor, Prof Charles Soludo on March 14.

Sitting governors in Nigeria have immunity from criminal prosecution while in office.
