Obanikoro dares anti-graft agency to extradite him

Speaking in an interview, Obanikoro described the EFCC's claims as a charade that is being hatched by the ruling party, All Progressive Congress.

 

Obanikoro has dared the Ibrahim Magu led Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to petition the American government to extradite him home if there are any facts to back up the agency'sclaims.

Speaking in an interview with Premium Times, Obanikoro described the EFCC's claims as a charade that is being hatched by the ruling party, All Progressive Congress.

"The whole world would now see their charade for what it is. It is even good for everyone to know the truth, including those who are sympathisers to the All Progressives Congress.

"Because, in Nigeria, you’re either on this side or the other side. But this American system is unbiased. They’re neither for me nor for them. So, let them bring the tissue of lies that they have put together and submit everything to serious judicial scrutiny and let us see whether it will fly. I am inviting them to do that," he said.

He further said, "I am telling you and I am appealing to all Nigerians to also join me in asking them to seek my extradition."

The former Senator and LG Boss' Ikoyi, Lagos home was on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 raided by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission following allegations that the ex-minister and his sons were involved in a N4.75bn fraud.
