Odionyenma who served as a member of the transition and inauguration committee of Governor Ihedioha is among the list of 78 Nigerian released by the body on Friday for involvement in Cyber Fraud in the United States.
According to reports, Mr Chidi was one of the major multi-millionaire financiers of the Imo Governor’s campaign between 2018 and early 2019.
He is reported to have made large monetary contributions to the campaign necessitating his inclusion as a member of the transition and inauguration committee.
