DSS in Desperate Search for Evidence Raids Obanikoro’s House, Arrests Wife
Men of the Department of State Security (DSS) on Tuesday stormed the Ikoyi residence of the former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, and arrested up his wife, Alhaja Moroofat Omolola, after hours of ransacking the house without laying their hands on anything.
According to Thisday, security sources confirmed that the DSS men were actually at Obanikoro’s residence to search the house for possible evidence that could help in their investigation but could not relate with the arrest of his wife.
Mrs. Obanikoro was afterwards taken to their office on CMD Road, Shangisha.
She was later transported to the Lagos office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), where she was eventually released.
The raid follows a similar one by the EFCC mid-June.
Obanikoro, who is still out of the country, had via his Twitter handle condemned the EFCC raid, describing it as a political witch-hunt and injustice.
