The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has denied arresting wife of the former governor of Anambra State, Ebelechukwu Obiano.
The spokesman of the Commission, Wilson Uwujaren, debunked the report about the arrest.
WUwujaren said “We do not have her in our custody”.
After his arrest, he was moved to Abuja, where he spent a few days, before being released on bail.
Ebelechukwu has been hugging the headlines herself as she picked the APGA nomination form to contest the Anambra North senate seat.
Earlier, the former first lady of Anambra state was said to have been in the custody of the commission in Abuja.
She was also said to have been questioned for alleged fraud.
Mrs Obiano caused a stir after she became involved in a brawl with a former Nigerian ambassador to Spain and wife of Biafra warlord, Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, during the swearing-in of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as Anambra State Governor on March 17.
She is seeking to contest in the 2023 elections to represent Anambra North District at the Senate under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Her rumoured arrest was coming about a month after her husband was apprehended at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, as he attempted to leave for the United States, hours after handing over to his successor, Soludo.
He was subsequently moved to Abuja the following day and quizzed over the alleged diversion of N37 billion security vote and N5bn SURE-P fund.
