He was arrested while on his way to the United States. Confirming the development during a chat with BBC Pidgin, the EFCC spokesperson said Obiano was arrested because he was on the watchlist of the anti-graft agency.

He added that they couldn’t arrest him earlier because of his immunity as a sitting Governor.

He said,“Obiano has been on our watchlist for some time 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”.
