The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has confirmed it had commenced disciplinary action against one of its officers for leaking a video of the immediate past Governor of Anambra, Willie Obiano while still in its custody.
The agency disclosed this in a statement titled “EFCC Subjects Officer Behind Obiano’s Video Leak to Disciplinary Action”.
The statement reads in part: “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.”
Recall that the EFCC granted Obiano administrative bail today (Mobday) after he spent four nights in its custody.
