News Flash:  Obanikoro Arrives Nigeria, Set to Hand Himself Over To EFCC

A former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, has arrived Nigeria in an apparent move to submit himself to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) ,Premium Times gathered.

Obanikoro has been having a running battle with the anti-graft agency on allegations bordering on financial crimes. He left for the United States shortly after his party lost the 2015 elections and he ceased being a minister.The EFCC accused him of using his children to take out government contracts that were never executed.

Obanikoro, on a separate charge, was also implicated in the Ekiti elections scandal. It is not clear if he was prepared to answer questions about that, too.

He had initially vowed not to return to the country alleging persecution by the government as a means to discredit him.

Demola Olarewaju, an associate of the politician confirmed his arrival. Mr. Olarewaju said Obanikoro had moved to Abuja from Lagos and could visit the EFCC headquarters on Monday.
