Obanikoro To Spend The Night In Detention

A former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro, will pass the night at the Economic and Financial Crimes headquarters in Abuja, his counsel told Premium Times this night.

James Onoja, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and lead counsel to Mr. Obanikoro, said the former minister arrived will likely be grilled overnight by detectives after he arrived the commission’s office earlier on Monday.

“He submitted himself to them upon returning to the country this morning.” Mr. Onoja said in a telephone interview. “Unfortunately, he won’t be out again today. He told them all he knew in his statement, so we hope he’ll be released tomorrow.”
