Obanikoro Flees To US As Fayose's Court Case Begins by aminulive: 10:27am On Oct 21
@POLITICSNGR

Information reaching the PoliticsNGR newsdesk today reveals that Former Minister, Musliu Obanikoro has reportedly traveled to the US, a few days before the court case of Former Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose is set to commence.

Obanikoro, who was listed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to testify against Fayose left the country last Wednesday for Medical treatment an did not specify a date of return.

A former Minister of State for Defence, Obanikoro, traveled shortly after he retrieved his passports from the EFCC.

This is despite a directive by the Federal Government that 50 persons under investigations for fraud exceeding N50m are restricted from travelling.

Obanikoro, who has an American passport and a Nigerian one, reportedly met certain conditions before his passports were returned to him.

Obanikoro has been under investigation since 2016 for allegedly receiving N4.7bn from the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), in 2014.

The former minister allegedly handed over about N1.3bn to former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and another N1.3bn to the then Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Osun State in 2014, Senator Iyiola Omisore.

After Fayose was arrested by the EFCC last Tuesday, however, it was learnt that Obanikoro traveled to the US.

The former minister, who has defected to the All Progressives Congress, had declared his intention to run for the Lagos West senatorial district election but shelved his ambition at the last minute.

Please what has one got to do with the other?

Dude wants to watch from the sides as Buhari is sent back to Daura by Atiku whose landslide victory will be as a result of the masses' repulse for Buhari and the impeccable choice of Peter Obi as VP.

Fayose is lucky, even if he is being victimized, it's gonma be just for a shortwhile.

Nigerians be wise, vote Buhari out

No sentiments, do the right thing for once in this country.

Buhari has no future for Nigeria.

It is very clear.

Those who can't see this are brainless, lifeless and unrepentant zombies

It shouldn't be that hard for Obanikoro to travel. First he is a dual citizen of Nigeria and USA.

While Nigeria authority can seize his passports, his American passport remains the property of United state of America.

Him being a former ambassador to Ghana, all he has to do is to find his way to Ghana or Republic of Benin and apply for his American passport from there.

The masses are being played like football here.

Step 1. Be in position of power/ authority.

Step 2. Steal billions.

Step 3. If you or your party looses power, go to step 4 or 5

Step 4. Decamp to the ruling party .

Step 5. Out of stollen 2 billion, return 100 million to EFCC or out of stolen 2 billion use 300 million to fight EFCC until your party is back in power.

It's very funny hearing zombies refer to the lifeless one as Mr Integeity, I begin to wonder if Integrity means sumtyn different in there dictionary.

Buhari is the most corrupt man on earth and would dine with the devil just to retain power, he is power drunk, egocentric, nepotic and clueless.

No wonder he is mute about Ganduje bullion Van Agbada, and probably forming the "I am not aware".

2019 election is between

Team Nigeria Vs Team Buharist.

God bless
His Excellency Atiku Abubakar

Fake news. Koro has been lef off the hook. He plea bargained. Returned some of the money and provided evidences to nail fayose. He did not spend d money or withdrew it from cbn did he. The case is between GEJ Dasuki nd fayose. As long as GEJ cannot be summoned na dead end case

He was supposed to stay and stand as a witness against Fayose. Or is someone running from being a witness knowing that every charge given there is false?

EFCC star witness cheesy

Look people, Buhari's government is utterly corrupt and the most deceitful government in the history of Nigeria.

How do you return Obanikoro's passport to him when he is supposed to be a witness in a case you have hyped in the media?

How did you allow him to travel out just a few days to the commencement of that trial?

The reason is simple...they have nothing to hold on to Fayose hence they want to frustrate their own case while keeping him in custody indefinitely.

I hope the judiciary can see through their delay tactics and strike out the case.
