The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday moved ex-Governor Willy Obiano from Lagos to Abuja for quizzing over alleged N42 billion fraud.

 

Obiano was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja on Thursday night a few hours after he handed over power to Prof. Charles Soludo in Awka, and subsequently lost his immunity from arrest.

 

The former governor was said to be on his way to the United States where he was residing before his election eight years ago.

 

He is alleged to have mismanaged his security vote while in office.

 

Some of the funds were allegedly diverted to political activities.

 

It was learnt that Obiano was moved to Abuja because the desk handling his case in the last two years is at the EFCC’s headquarters.
