As Anambra gov appoints six principal officers
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said its officer behind the trending video that showed former Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano, in its custody was undergoing disciplinary action.
It said the video contravened the established Standard Operating Procedure of the EFCC, adding that several reactions had trailed the video of Obiano in EFCC’s custody, which appeared online on Sunday afternoon and thereafter.
For instance, while describing the video as an embarrassment, the Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council decried the ‘inhumane treatment’ meted out to Obiano and queried how the video leaked in the first place
