Ex Minister, Obanikoro Finally Returns Huge Amount Of Money To EFCC





Ex Minister, Obanikoro Finally Returns Huge Amount Of Money To EFCC Musiliu Obanikoro

Musiliu Obanikoro, a former Minister of State for Defence, has returned N100million to the Nigerian government.

This is following his arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC 

According to Premium Times, sources close to the former minister and others at the anti-graft agency, have confirmed the payment.

Sources said the EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, rejected the offer and asked for more return by the embattled former senator.

Mr. Magu, sources said, demanded that the former minister sign an undertaking to pay back N600 million within a stipulated time.

The former minister rejected the demands, saying he had no means of raising such an amount. “He refused to sign the pledge, saying the money was too much,” an EFCC source said.

But the source said Mr. Obanikoro, nonetheless, continued to cooperate with his interrogators. “He had really carried himself very well since he got here, really cooperating with everyone.”

The EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed that Mr. Obanikoro had indeed returned some money. He, however, said the EFCC was still verifying the payments and continuing its investigation.

Mr. Obanikoro was remanded in custody after turning himself in to the anti-graft agency on October 17.

He is accused of accepting more than N2 billion from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
