AGF Malami speaks as EFCC puts Anambra State Governor on watch list

In reaction to the report that Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State is on the watchlist of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, has insisted he is not aware.

The Minister of Justice also said he was not part of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council of the Anambra governorship election.

Malami stated this while speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday night.

He said, “I’m in all sincerity not aware and I don’t have to be aware because the EFCC is established by law.

“Their responsibilities are demarcated by law and what they do are demarcated by law, not the Attorney-General or the office of the Attorney-General.”

Meanwhile, the Anambra State Government has said Obiano is ready to answer questions about his tenure in office, and that the Governor, who is currently in the US, did not leave the country in disguise.
