‘EFCC has never OFFICIALLY made public ANY investigation of my record in Government at ANY TIME before this Illegal Invasion of my house’.
‘I put close to two decades of into public service, in opposition and in government, all with unblemished record and a clear conscience’ he added.
He also deny that he never get any invitation from EFCC before invading his house yesterday.
‘Let me reiterate clearly: I have never received any invitation from EFCC over any issue up till date. This invasion therefore is premature’.

If you recall, the officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday, stormed the Ikoyi home of former Minister of State for Defence, Mr Musiliu Obanikoro and allegedly went away with some vehicles and other valuables. Obanikoro was not at home when they visited, as he was said to be out of the country.
