Men of the Department of State Security (DSS) earlier this Thursday stormed the Ikoyi residence of the former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, and picked up his wife, Alhaja Moroofat Omolola, after hours of ransacking the house without laying their hands on anything.

Security sources confirmed to THISDAY that the DSS men were actually at Obanikoro’s residence to search the house for possible evidence that could help in their investigation but could not relate with the arrest of his wife.

Mrs. Obanikoro, who has since been kept in their custody at the Lagos office of the DSS on CMD Road, Shangisha was yet to be released as at the time of filing this report, before she was moved a few minutes ago to the Lagos office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), where she was eventually released.

Efforts to reach the Obanikoros however failed as none of them was answering their calls. But a close family friend who confirmed the development said the family was shocked with the arrest of Obanikoro’s wife.

“We know the EFCC was on the matter and had been there at their homes some weeks ago, although without any warrant. But we cannot understand the involvement of the DSS. They were in the house earlier today and after hours of searching everywhere without laying their hands on anything they insisted the woman must come with them.

“Here is a woman, who has been managing high blood pressure and heart-related disease for many years in their custody. What is the business of the woman in this matter and why are our security guys acting this way? This country is going down and it is sad,” he said.

However, not quite long after she was moved to the EFCC office, the anti-graft agency released her, although the basis for her arrest in the first place was not known.

Tinubu finally speaks on Lekki shooting, tells Buhari to find culprits

Former Governor of Lagos state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commented on the Lekki toll gate shooting that left many dead and several others injured.

The Lagos politician who was interviewed via telephone by a Channels TV reporter, Olu Philips, shared his shock over the shooting and also revealed that he is ready to complain to the highest authorities.

Contrary to people’s predictions, Tinubu however denied ordering the shooting and also stated that he can only control his security guard. He again reiterated that he will never be part of any group that uses live ammunition against protesters.

Insisting that he has always been an activist, the APC Chieftain expressed sympathy for the victims of the incident and advised the federal government to “fish out whoever gave the order (for the shooting) and put them on trial”.

He then recalled how he was falsely accused of being behind #EndSARS protests. Tinubu who noted that he doesn’t believe that Buhari ordered the shooting, appealed for calm over the incident. He also denied having a stake in the Lekki toll gate or suffering a loss due to the continous blockage of the area by #EndSARS protesters.

He said,

“It is early hours of the morning, there’s no way I can talk to the authorities or wake them up now. I have tried to reach the NSA, I have tried to reach the head of the army.

“You don’t call the president at this hour, but I strongly condemn the act. There are other means of settling or dispersing protest. Why would they use live bullets? There are rubber bullets.

“I am not even sure yet they are Nigerian army, I am not sure how well the uniforms of the army are controlled. But that is not as critical as the bloodshed that has occurred.

“We have lost our sleep, we have lost our peace of mind, (and) we just have to deal with it.”
