July 15, 2016 – DSS Arrests Obanikoro’s Wife In Ikoyi Lagos While Preparing To Return To The US
The wife of ex-Defence Minister Musiliu Obanikoro has been arrested by officials of the Department of State Security Services.
Alhaja Morufat Onikoro was picked up in front of her husband’s home in Ikoyi Lagos yesterday while she was getting ready to return to the United States.
The politician wife who fled Nigeria to the US with her husband in June 2015 was allowed to return home by the EFCC on Thursday on condition that she would return today Friday the 15th of July 2016 however, she reportedly fixed up a plan to quickly return to the US the same day she was supposed to return to the agency office to answer questions on her husband’s involvement in the N4.7billion allegedly siphoned from the office of the NSA.
She was picked up by DSS operatives yesterday as she was about to make her way to the airport with some vital documents.
Mrs Obanikoro has been placed on surveillance ever since the anti-corruption agency released her.
Her last move to outsmart the agency forced DSS to arrest her with the hope that her husband who is currently hiding in the United States will return home to face questioning.
A source said she will be transferred to the EFCC office today for questioning.
