Obanikoro, Wife, Son Recover N500m Houses, Land From EFCC by Holadokun(m): 1:17am On Nov 25, 2018
A former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, his wife and children have recovered three properties worth about N500m from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt.

The properties include four terrace houses located at 44 Mamman Kotangora Crescent in the highbrow Katamkpe Extension area of Abuja; a parcel of land in Guzape District and a duplex at Olori Mojisola Onikoyi Avenue, Ikoyi, Lagos.


Our correspondents, who visited the properties on Thursday, observed that the erstwhile red paint inscription, ‘EFCC, Keep Off!’ had been wiped off on the walls of the buildings.

Obanikoro, who defected to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party about a year ago, was under investigation along with his two sons for alleged money laundering.


The ex-minister was accused of receiving N4.7bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser under the leadership of Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) in 2014.

About N2.2bn out of the funds was allegedly handed over to the then governorship candidate of the PDP in Ekiti State, Governor Ayodele Fayose, while N1.3bn was said to have been given to the then Osun State governorship candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore.


Obanikoro has, however, been converted to a prosecution witness and is expected to testify against Fayose who he allegedly handed part of the money to.

The ex-minister and his wife, Moroophat, had, in 2016, sued the EFCC for seizing the houses but lost as the court ruled that the EFCC had the right to seize properties of persons under investigation.


An FCT High Court sitting in Jabi had ordered the forfeiture of her property pending the outcome of investigations into her husband and children.

The court also rejected a prayer asking that the EFCC pay her the sum of N200m for violating her fundamental human rights.

Obanikoro’s wife had argued that she bought the property over seven years before the alleged arms scam took place.

She said the EFCC had no right to punish her for any crime allegedly committed by her husband and urged the court to award her N200m.

However, in an affidavit deposed to by one Jackson Edet, the EFCC claimed that Obanikoro’s wife could not claim to be ignorant of her husband’s alleged crime.

The commission said Moroophat’s husband and her sons collected over N600m from the ONSA for a non-existent contract.


The EFCC argued that investigation had shown that, “the property belongs to Musliu Obanikoro and he paid for the statutory charges for the property.

“That a lawyer, Tejumola Wasiu Adeboye, who volunteered a statement to the commission, stated that he managed the said property and remits the rent to MOB Integrated Services (a company allegedly owned by Obanikoro which is also under probe).


In his ruling, Justice Y. Halilu said he could not stop the EFCC from doing its work.

When contacted on the telephone, the acting spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Tony Orilade, said he had no information on the matter and prayed for more time to respond.

He had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report on Saturday.

Just like Silva.
Buhari is the most corrupt,most integrity deficit,most nepotic,most parochial and most incompetent,by dozen of miles,head of government,anywhere in the world,that the world may ever know.
Idi Amin,Mobutu Seseseko,Paul Biya of Cameroun etc,are amateurs in all the aforementioned,when compared to Buhari.
If there is hell,then the hottest parts are waiting for anyone that elects to vote this man again,Muslim,Christian or Pagan

Your parents queued up for long hours in 1984 for milk, rice and beans; you'd have to be a gullible dimwit to think buhari gives a damn about you anti corruption fight?

A people with no knowledge of their history will never be gifted with the skills of retrospective analysis, and are bound to keep repeating their mistakes. This is exactly why it was easy to pick up an expired ethnic bigot and despotic illiterate from the dustbin of history, and dust him up into a "reformed democrat" in the eyes of the gullible, ignorant populace.

If no be say Fayose get stubborn head, e for just kuku join APC enjoy him "loot" in peace just like Timipre Silva, Grasscutter, Gandollar etal.
I think it is high time we shift focus on the war against corruption to war against excruciating poverty and loss of jobs, if this is how we want to keep fighting corruption because the rate at which are going, the statistics on Nigeria's unemployment might surpass the population of China..

Continue to hail them in poverty.
How many of these loots did Obanikoro give you or your papa?
They continue to extort us, both PDP and APC, while some poverty stricken people are taking sides with their oppressors like they share from the loots.
some shameless people like you call people that dare to question the oppressors WAILERS.

I ask you HAILER, how much did you earn from Koro or any corrupt PDP/APC men for coming here to support them?
You will hail Koro and his children while they loot you and inflict poverty on you and the nation, your children will be affected in future, they will also serve and hail Koro's children.

SHAME ON YOU
