Willie Obiano, the former governor of Anambra state, is currently trending online in a video in which he is seen drinking water.
Willie Obiano was detained by the EFCC on charges of misappropriation of public funds. Obiano attempted to flee the country on the day he handed over to his successor, Prof Charles Soludo, but his luck ran out when he was captured by efcc operatives at Lagos’ Murtala Muhammed airport.
Obiano’s video has sparked outrage online, with some claiming that if you go straight to the Efcc office from the gate, your phone will be removed; others questioned how someone could use a phone to film a high-ranking public official in boxers (short).
Many feel Obiano’s arrest is politically motivated, while others believe he will soon be released on medical grounds, as is customary for anyone facing prosecution in Nigeria. Others also predict his case will be dismissed in court and he will be let free. What are your thoughts on the Obiano case?
