The EFCC in June had challenged Obanikoro to come out of hiding and face the evidence before the commission in court so as to prove his innocence and that of his children.

Obanikoro had been under the EFCC’s radar over alleged receipt of N4.7 billion from the office of the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki in 2014.

The cash was reportedly traced the two men- Babajide and Gbolahan-who are both directors of a firm used in siphoning the funds from the Office of the former National Security Officer, Sambo Dasuki.
