Dasukigate: Obanikoro Returns N134m to EFCC, Promisies To Balance Up In 2017

Reports say that a former Minister of State for Defence,
Senator Musiliu Obanikoro has returned N30m to the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.



The latest refund brings the total amount of money he has returned to the EFCC to N134m.
“Obanikoro came on Monday and presented a draft of about N30m.
Initially we did not want to collect it because it is small compared to
what he is supposed to have given us. However, the legal department
advised us to collect it,” Punch quoted an insider as saying.
Obanikoro had in October returned N104m to the commission.
Obanikoro was said to have kept about N785m for himself, which he
allegedly spent while campaigning ahead of the PDP governorship primary
in Lagos State. Mr. Jimi Agbaje won the primary.
However, the EFCC asked Obanikoro to return about N584m out of which he had already returned N134m.
At the EFCC office on Monday, Obanikoro promised the detectives that he would return the remaining N450m in 2017.
The source added, “About N450m is remaining and Obanikoro has
promised to balance up in 2017. He will also be reporting at our
office every two weeks.”
