PostSubject: More trouble for Obanikoro as EFCC makes ANOTHER shocking discovery   2016-11-07, 13:55

Former minister of state for defence Musili Obanikoro is another trouble with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after fresh investigations by the agency traced N400m loot to him.

Senator Musiliu Obanikoro has agreed to make refunds of the money he allegedly collected from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA)

Sahara Reporters quotes The Punch as reporting that Obanikoro might return to EFCC detention after it was discovered that he allegedly received N400m from a former minister of finance Senator Nenadi Usman, who was the Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation during the build-up to the 2015 elections.

“As part of investigations into the billions disbursed by Nenadi Usman during the build-up to the 2015 elections, we interrogated a suspect at our office. The suspect told us that he handed over N400m to Obanikoro in the presence of some PDP members.

“So, Obanikoro will be invited to the Lagos office of the EFCC to tell his own side of the story,”an EFCC detective was quoted as saying.

The money Usman disbursed allegedly emanated from a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

But The Punch quoted a source close to Obanikoro denied the allegations, saying that the ex-minister was not in charge of former President’s Goodluck Jonathan’s Lagos campaign and therefore could not have received such money.

He said: “I am aware that the EFCC has interrogated the person who collected money for the Jonathan campaign organization. However, Senator Obanikoro never collected N400m from him.

“Those who collected money at Federal Palace Hotel know themselves, and they should please leave Senator Obanikoro out of it.”

Recall that Obanikoro was released on Friday, November 4 after spending about three weeks in EFCC detention over money he received from the arms deal scandal of former national security adviser Sambo Dasuki.

He has refunded N100m and promised to return an additional N480m. His American and Nigerian passport were also seized by the anti-corruption agency.
