EFCC has assembled a lineup of 15 witnesses in the N4Bn theft case against Obiano


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) announced its intention to present 15 witnesses in the N4bn theft case against former Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano.

The prosecuting counsel, Slyvanus Tahir, assured the court of the EFCC’s readiness, emphasizing the documentary evidence and 15 witnesses available.

Obiano, who pleaded not guilty, had his lawyer request bail, leading to a discussion on administrative bail.

The judge granted bail but restricted Obiano’s movement to the court’s jurisdiction, ordering the EFCC to deposit his travel documents with the court registrar.

The case is scheduled to continue on March 4, 5, 6, and 7, with allegations of diverting security votes between 2014 and 2022.

Obiano is accused of transferring funds to entities unrelated to state affairs, violating money laundering laws.
