The officer who leaked a video of Willie Obiano, immediate past governor of Anambra, in the custody of the anti-graft agency has been pen down for disciplinary action.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday stated that it has identified the officer.
Shortly after his arrest, a video of the former governor in the custody of the EFCC surfaced on social media.
Reacting to the development in a statement issued on Monday, the EFCC said the video leak was against its operational guidelines, adding that the officer in question would be sanctioned accordingly.
A statement issued by Wilson Uwujaren EFCC’ spokesperson 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.”
