DSS Arrests Moroofat Omolola Obanikoro, Releases Her Later

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.
