The former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro on Monday returned an additional sum of N34 million to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC bringing his total returned amount to N134m.
Obanikoro who was accused of receiving N4.7bn from the former National Security Adviser Col. Sambo Dasuki appealed to the anti-graft agency to allow him return the remaining N450m in 2017.
According to a source in the commission, “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”
“About N450m is remaining and Obanikoro has promised to pay the rest in 2017. He will also be reporting at our office every two weeks,” the source added.
