The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC, has disputed claims that Eberechukwu, the wife of Anambra State’s immediate past governor, Willie Obiano, was in its custody.
The former Anambra state first lady was arrested and detained, according to online media (not Vanguard).
The online media said she was arrested over alleged fraud.
However, when Vanguard contacted Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC’s spokesman, he denied the report, saying that she is not in EFCC’s custody.
Recall that her husband, Willie Obiano has apprehended about a month ago at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, after handing over to his successor, Soludo.
Eberechukwu had last week declared interest to contest in the 2023 elections to represent Anambra North District at the Senate under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.
