Punch reports that a source at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), disclosed that Obanikoro said this when he visited the anti-graft agency’s office in Abuja.

“Senator Obanikoro came to the EFCC office on Monday morning as part of investigations into the N4.7bn. Since he has confessed that he was the one who collected the N4.7bn and distributed it, he is in the best position to testify in court.
“The EFCC wants him to testify against Agbele which will also build a strong case against Fayose who currently enjoys immunity. Obanikoro has agreed and will be listed as one of the EFCC witnesses.

“If Agbele is convicted, it automatically means that Fayose will also be convicted once he is charged in 2018. So let Fayose continue to play games. Omisore and Obanikoro are cooperating and returning money. Their troubles will end soon while Fayose’s own will keep getting worse.”



  1. No, he won’t surrender. What I suspect he ‘ll do is to siphon a lot of money from the state during his tenure and enter into a plead bargain with EFCC. He ‘ll return the money, but at the expense of leaving the state in ruins. He’s never said he’s innocent remember? All along, he’s only said he has immunity. As Omisore and Obanikoro will not be jailed, nothing will happen to him as well. He’s a very cunny guy. Presently making a lot of noise just to whip up public sympathy, but you ll be amazed once he s out of power. It’s just unfortunate how many people he’s been able to brainwash.
