Nike Ajibosin, an aide to the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, has landed in the net of the Economic & Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over alleged misappropriation of Lagos funds.
It was gathered that Ajibosin, the Speaker’s Foreign Relations and Protocol Officer, was detained by the anti-graft agency over alleged looting of funds. Ajibosin’s detention is coming after a series of petitions to the EFCC by CSOs and concerned citizens in the state.
Sources disclosed that Ajibosin was interrogated and detained for several days. In exchange for her freedom, she signed an agreement with EFCC to refund alleged loots, which she allegedly confirmed to have in her kitty.
Nike is known to be a powerful civil servant with Lagos State House of Assembly and she is rumored to have two mansions on highbrow Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Ajibosin, we learned, has been using her vantage position to allegedly enrich herself to a very good end. It was alleged that her homestead is always besieged by lobbyists, contractors, and general favour-seekers, who throng there in their scores to get assistance and favours from the Speaker.
Adenike is alleged to be so powerful that even honourable members of the hallowed chambers deal with her at arm’s length for fear of not incurring her anger or wrath, should they step on her toes for any reason whatsoever,” sources disclosed.
Ajibosin began her career in the Lagos State civil servant where she was posted to the Lagos State House of Assembly as a Corp member a few years back during the tenure of the immediate past Speaker, Adeyemi Ikuforiji. She did her primary assignment in the protocol office of the then Speaker and has grown to wield so much power.
