Former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi may be next in line to be invited by the EFCC and here is why. Recently the anti-graft commission arrested the former MD of Fidelity bank,Nnamdi Okonkwo for his involvement in the $115 million election bribery scandal. Okonkwo received huge cash sums in dollars from 4 oil companies and disbursed them to certain beneficiaries on behalf of ex-petroleum minister Diezani Allison Madueke.
Okonkwo, in his confession, told interrogators that he was acting under instructions from Obi, who is said to be one of the owners of the bank, to go to Alison-Madueke’s residence in Abuja for a “financial transaction that could benefit the bank.”
Obi is a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and was part of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign team. Okonkwo was granted bail late Thursday night.
