Breaking: Ex-Minister, Obanikoro Returns to Nigeria from Exile, Set to Surrender to EFCC…See Fresh Details

In a bid to clear his name and to answer to some of the allegations against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, ex-minister, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro who has been out of the country has returned to Nigeria.
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 earlier this morning to answer to some of the allegations against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to an authoritative report by ThisDay newspaper, 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, but not before breaking into his home in Park View, Ikoyi, months back. 
SaharaReporters revealed on its official Twitter account that Obanikoro who reportedly touched ground early this morning in Abuja, the nation’s capital enroute London Heathrow, was said to have stayed away first, because no formal invitation had been extended to him, noting that all that had been said and reported about him were not in official capacity.
But as soon as a formal invitation was sent to him, his lawyers were said to have promised the commission that he would honour it, more so that he had nothing to hide.
Apart from his studies, one other reason he was said to have stayed back in the US was to address some health issues, sources claimed was very crucial.
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.
Efforts to reach Obanikoro did not yield as family members said he would not speak until he is done with the EFCC. But ThisDay gathered that he would be led to the commission by his two lawyers, Lawal Pedro and James Onoja, both Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SAN).
