The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has placed the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, on a watchlist.
However, it is unclear why the commission placed the governor who will leave office next year on its watchlist.
In a letter dated November 15, 2021, and addressed to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), the EFCC requested the Service to place Obiano on a watch list and inform it anytime he is travelling out of Nigeria from any of the international airports as well as other entry and exit points in the country.
The letter was seen by journalists on Wednesday.
Obiano will hand over to the Anambra State governor-elect, Prof.Charles Soludo, on March 16, 2022.
