“He submitted himself to them upon returning to the country this morning. Unfortunately, he won’t be out again today,” Onoja reportedly said.

Onoja further said: “He told them all he knew in his statement, so we hope he’ll be released tomorrow. If he’s not released, then we’ll have to do the needful. At least we have the courts and this is still a country that should be governed by the rule of law.”

Obanikoro, who has been having a running battle with EFCC from America, where he had gone to study, arrived the country on Monday, October 17, 2016.
