Ribadu Probed Me, My Late Wife & Close Associates When I Was Still In Power- Obasanjo
Speaking at the presentation on “Illicit Financial Flow and Governance of Natural Resources” by Mallam Ribadu at the 3rd Tana High Level Forum on Security in Africa in Badir Dar, Ethiopia over the weekend, former president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo recalled how Nuru Ribadu, who was the EFCC chairman probed him, his close associates and his late wife, Stella Obasanjo.
Obasanjo says he agrees with Ribadu that at the centre of anti-corruption fight there was need for willing political leadership at the highest level.
He also recounted for the first time how Ribadu was once poisoned, saying it was a very serious case and was “a matter of life and death.”
