“The ex-minister has been cooperating with detectives and he appears willing to refund some cash out of the N785 million traced to Sylvan McNamara.
“I think his associates and friends have rallied around him, having discovered that the bulk of the cash from ONSA went to Fayose and Omisore.
“I think he might initially refund N100 million to get bail reprieve in order to
prevail on others who benefited from the N785 million to repay the slush funds.
“The refund is one of the issues delaying the granting of bail to the ex-minister.”
and Obanikoro had said: “The balance of N785 million were used to prosecute the following: 1.
procurement of souvenirs for the promotion of anti-Boko Haram insurgency in Lagos; 2. N200million
for surveillance activities; 3. N200 million and other remaining funds were for operations managed by Taiwo Kareem.
