The Public Relations Officer of the commission, Wilson Uwajaren, speaking in a chat with BBC Pidgin, have now explained the reason behind the arrest.

He explained that the EFCC had been watching Obiano for a whle now but they couldn’t take any action against him because of the immunity he had as a state governor, but now that he has handed over power to Charles Soludo, he has lost his immunity.

Uwajaren however didn’t disclose his exact crime.

He said;

“Obiano has been on our watchlist for sometime now. He had immunity as a governor and that is why we could not arrest him before now.

“Today he lost the immunity and was traveling out of the country before we finally arrested him”.
