He looks unhappy: Video of Obiano drinking bottled water in EFCC office

Meanwhile, activist and convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, had shared a video of Obiano drinking bottled water while in the custody of the EFCC).

Adeyanjo who shared the video on his Facebook page accompanied it with a caption that read: Ex Anambra governor in EFCC custody. When you are in power be careful.

Different reactions from Nigerians have swiftly followed the video

Abiodun Mabayomije Adenuga:

"There’s nothing like be careful when you steal, the admonition should be “do what is right and proper while in power” because telling a thief to be careful while in power is equivalent to advising a thief to steal carefully."

Ebuka Victor Ikeakor:

"No matter what, he deserves some level of respect. Why haven't they posted this manner of video for Criminal Super Cop drug dealer?
"If he was a Northerner or Fulani will EFCC dare post this video. This is another form of marginalization, even if he is corrupt let there be professionalism on the side of EFCC."

James Nelson Uche:

"Every governor of Nigeria states have one way or the other,embezzled public fund. However, bringing into custody most times, seems selective.
"Those brought into custody, usually don't face the full weight of the law, unless they didn't come in terms. The most annoying thing is when the people will massively vote for those who will not embezzle public fund. Those who came 4th will be declared the winner."
