Anambra State Traditional Rulers Council says its attention has been drawn to a video clip circulating on the social media showing the immediate past Governor of Anambra State Chief Willie Obiano in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission custody.
In a statement, Anambra State traditional rulers council expressed disappointment that someone of the status of a former state governor will be treated in such a distasteful and reprehensible manner by an agency of the federal government.
It said that it is equally disturbed that such a video clip found its way out of the highly secured environment of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission unto the social media, obviously with the intent of causing maximum embarrassment to Chief Obiano and by extension the people of Anambra State.
Anambra State traditional rulers council, on behalf of all traditional rulers of Anambra State, called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to treat Chief Obiano with due civility.
It also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice Mallam Abubakar Malami, to call the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to order regarding the appalling condition Chief Obiano is being subjected to.
