The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that it has identified the officer who leaked the video of the immediate past governor of Anambra, Willie Obiano while in their custody.
In a released statement by Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson of the anti-graft agency, the EFCC said the video leak was against its operational guidelines, adding that the officer in question would be sanctioned accordingly.
The statement further reads: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a trending video showing the former Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, in the custody of the Commission,”
“The Commission wishes to distance itself from the said video which is completely at variance with the established Standard Operating Procedure of the EFCC.”
“A discreet investigation ordered upon discovery of the leak has revealed the errant officer behind the odious act and he is currently being subjected to appropriate disciplinary action.”
You would recall that, on March 17, Obiano was taken into custody in Lagos before he was transferred to the headquarters of the commission in Abuja.
Shortly after his arrest, a video of the former governor in the custody of the EFCC went viral.
