the family of looters" sometimes ago..hmmm...looks like those words are coming to pass...
Operatives of the EFCC on Friday, 15 July, 2016 grilled Shalewa Obanikoro, the beautiful daughter of Musiliu Obanikoro, over a transaction of N800m that was traced to her account.
Investigators revealed that Shalewa
was grilled at the Lagos office of the
EFCC for several hours along with her mother, Moroophat.
It was discovered that almost One Billion entered her account. An impeccable source at the anti-graft agency said as part of investigations into the N4.7bn allegedly paid into the company account of Obanikoro’s sons – Babajide and Gbolahan – by the Office of the National Security Adviser, the commission started investigating some other members of the family.
The detective told The Nation:
“Obanikoro’s wife came to our office
on Friday morning as part of
investigations into the N4.7bn paid
into Sylvan McNamara, a company
owned by her sons. During investigation, we stumbled on the
account of an oil company. We then
discovered that Obanikoro’s
daughter was a signatory to the
account of the oil company and that
millions of naira was paid into the account at different times.
“We then invited the daughter and
she came to meet us at the office.
During investigations, we found out
that the daughter gave a standing
order to the bank that N800m
should be moved into another account. We wondered why such a
young girl would have access to
such funds so we started quizzing
“This is a whole new dimension to
the case and we will continue to
investigate to find out if it is related
to the arms probe or not.”
EFCC seized Shalewa's US passport to prevent her from escaping like her father and brothers. The investigator said,
“We were told that she was planning on travelling to the US soon so we swiftly seized her passport because she is vital to
our investigation. However, we told
her to be coming from home.”
