The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is set to invite former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro for questioning over allegations that he received a car gift from Jide Omokore, an associate of former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The EFCC will also expectedly interrogate former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu on the same charges, Punch reports.

“Some of the vehicles were given to Secondus but other PDP leaders received the vehicles, which were mostly Sport Utility Vehicles. We were told that Obanikoro received five of such vehicles,” a source told Punch.

“Mu’azu’s name has also been mentioned in the car issue but he has been out of the country for some months and we cannot get him now.

“Obanikoro and members of his family have been out of the country since last year but we hear he goes to Ghana and returns to the US. The two of them, Muazu and Obanikoro, are needed to make clarifications on the cars,” the source added.

The EFCC has also arrested PDP Deputy National Chairman, Uche Secondus for allegedly collecting 23 vehicles worth N310 million from Omokore.
