The panel investigating the alleged diversion of $2.1bn meant for arms procurement under the immediate past administration of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan has embarked on a discrete investigation into the former Minister of State for Defence, Sen. Musiliu Obanikoro.

It was gathered that the team of EFCC investigators had traced the sum of N4.75bn to the account of Silva McNamara Limited with Diamond Bank with links to the family of the former minister.

A top operative of the commission, who confided in our correspondent, said that the company had two sons of the former minister on its board.

The names of the relatives on the company’s board are Gbolahan Obanikoro and Babajide Obanikoro.

It was stated that the duo were on the board of the company till 2014 when one Olalekan Ogunseye became the sole signatory to the company’s account.

Investigations revealed that the funds were paid into the McNamara account from the Central Bank of Nigeria Imprest Account of the National Security adviser between June 6, 2014 and December, 12, 2015.

The breakdown of the lodgements of funds into the account during the six months period revealed that N200m was paid into the account on June 6, 2014; N2bn on June 16, 2014; N60m on July 6, 2014 and N7, 000m on July 7, 2014.

The source said that the commission was probing the payment of N4.75bn to McNamara because the funds were released without any contractual evidence.

    Musiliu Obanikoro a heartless murderer who would do anything for money is here in Houston, Texas hanging around in the mosque. He has a property here in Houston Texas with his body, Ex-Minister of Police Affairs quietly enjoying parts of their loots while the poor masses are dying in Nigeria. May the Creator punish all of them one by one. May they never have peace again since they put Nigeria citizens in financial and economic bondage. I have no mercy for anyone who hurts humanity.

    Koro is a crook politicians who made millions from Nigeria in crooked way just like other corrupt political. He has used his position with other high ranking military officers to rig Ekiti election. I don’t know how much he was paid for this shameful act but he did play a significant role. This guy is in United States now and i’m not sure if he is back in Nigeria but I noticed that he left Nigeria for United States prior to Buhari inauguration. He has a son who lives in Maryland, United States and has been using that boy as a proxy for all stolen money. That boy has also helped Koro to buy some properties in Washington metro area. The investigating panel were right about their investigation and I strongly believe they might have traced the money back to his son’s account. I’m not an olofofo but the fact remains that Koro is using his both sons as a cover up. After destroying his mother land he wants to settle down in U.S to start enjoying his loot. God will never allow that to happen. #4.8 Billion naira equivalent to $25,000,000 U.S dollars, is a huge amount of money that cannot be ignore and that is not the only money we are talking about here, there are other unaccounted stolen money in his possession. The only thing that baffle me about this situation is how they wastefully spending our money. Obanikoro is dating one of Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo and he has been extravagantly spending money on this lady. He bought her a house and opened a boutique for her. Obanikoro has a query to answer, he must come forward to explain how he end up getting a share from arms money. Buhari is a very intelligent person, he knew Dausuki is an epicenter of how our money was diverted and since he arrested him, a lot of secret has been revealed.
