Former Anambra State Governor, Willie Maduabuchi Obiano has told a Federal High Court in Abuja that he cannot be prosecuted in Abuja for fraud crimes he allegedly committed in Anambra State.
At the Monday’s proceedings, EFCC lawyer, Sylvanus Tahir told the court that he had three witnesses to present against the governor for the trial.
Obiano, through his lawyer, Onyechi Ikpeazu insisted that the appropriate place to determine the money laundering charges instituted against him must be considered and resolved before any trial could commence.
He asked the court to decline jurisdiction to try the fraud charges and to direct the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to shift the prosecution of the criminal matter to the appropriate place in Anambra.
The former governor who served two terms in Anambra State was arraigned before the court over alleged embezzlement of state funds amounting to N40 billion.
