Obanikoro files N100m lawsuit against EFCC over invasion of his home
After the anti-graft agency’s raid of his Lagos State home earlier this week, former minister of Defense Musiliu Obanikoro has slammed a N100 million lawsuit on the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission at a Federal High Court in Lagos.

Other applicants in the case include Mrs. Fati Obanikoro, Alhaja Moroophat Obanikoro, Gbolahon Obanikoro and Babajide Obanikoro.

A statement released by Obanikoro’s Media aide Jonathan Eze read:

“The applicants also want the court to restrain the commission from further entering their premises and an order Directing it to tender an unreserved public apology to them for the unlawful action.

“They are also asking the court to direct the respondent to release all the items, properties and personal effects seized from their premises.

“The applicants further want the court to hold that the action of the EFCC constitute a gross violation of their fundamental rights as guarantee under section 43 of the 1999 Constitution and Article 14 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights.”
