The former governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano’s wife, is reported to be in EFCC custody over alleged involvement in fraud.

That was during the hand over ceremony to Chukwuma Soludo at Anambra.
It was reported that Obiano’s wife is currently being questioned by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission.
About a month ago, Obiano was arrested at the Muritala Mohammed International Airport. The arrest was based on alleged fraud of ₦37 billion security vote and ₦5 billion SURE-P funds.

Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman for the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, said he was not aware of the recent turn of things.
He further stated that Ex-Governor Obiano’s wife was not in their custody.
