Former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, who has been out of the country for over a year, has returned to the country to answer to some of the allegations against him by the EFCC, ThisDay and Signalng report.
The former minister, whose family members have had very rough engagements with the EFCC over different allegations involving money, decided to return to the country after the commission formally extended an invitation.
Obanikoro, touched down early this morning in Abuja. He was said to have stayed away first, because no formal invitation had been extended to him. Apart from his studies, one other reason he was said to have stayed back in the US was to address some health issues.
He was recently said to have had a spinal cord surgery. Family sources said although Obanikoro had reservations about coming home to confront the allegations given the commission’s penchant for disregarding the rule of law, he however gave in when the need to clear his name became even more compelling.
