Ex-Gov Obiano to face trial for alleged N4bn theft, as court denies his application

In a setback for Willie Obiano, a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday dismissed his application seeking to quash corruption charges against him.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had leveled nine charges against Obiano, the former governor of Anambra State, alleging misappropriation of N4 billion.

Obiano, who was arraigned on January 24, is standing trial on nine charges bordering on alleged N4bn theft.
