There are indications that the former minister of state for defence, Musiliu Obanikoro might be freed soon.

According to Daily Post, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) might let the former minister go, for refunding N100m.

The money which the former minister refunded is a fulfillment of his earlier promise to refund  N785m.

Obanikoro had earlier revealed that N785m out of the N4.7b, was used to print souvenirs for anti-Boko Haram campaign in Lagos.

The former minister allegedly received N4.7b from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

Dasuki is currently standing trial for allegedly diverting funds meant for the purchase of arms for the Army to prosecute the war against Boko Haram.
