According to The nation newspaper, security agents yesterday arrested Hajiya Morufat Obanikoro, former Minister of Defence Musiliu Obanikoro’s wife. Her arrest followed intelligence sharing by the Department of State Service (DSS) and the EFCC.
She was picked up over the ongoing investigation of her husband, who is wanted for questioning over the N4.745bn slush funds from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

She was transffered to the EFCC, where she was later released after a bail. Her international passport was impounded. Sources said her bail is with the condition of surety support of a landed property owner in Lagos. She was requested to return on Monday for interrogation.

She allegedly arrived in the country last weekend from the U.S. It was learnt that she was arrested by the DSS in Lagos while sorting out some documents relating to the ongoing investigation of her husband.
A source said: “We got a report that she had sneaked into the country from the U.S. After the confirmation of her travel log, an alert was issued to all security agencies. She was arrested her in Lagos with some documents relating to the probe of the N4.745bn slush funds from ONSA.”
Another source spoke of excitement about her arrest because “some of the funds under investigation were wired into her company, which is called MOB. The source said: “She needs to explain to this commission what job she did to deserve such remittance into her account.
