Ralph Obioha, a chieftain of the defunct National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), has been arrested for allegedly attempting to murder Yomi Tokosi, former managing director of First African Trust Bank.

Obioha was summoned and detained by the police criminal investigations department in Lagos for allegedly attempting to murder Tokosi, his former business partner.

He has, however, been released on bail pending his arraignment by the Lagos director of public prosecution (DPP).

The former NADECO chieftain was named as the mastermind of the alleged murder attempt by one of his aides who was arrested following an attack on Tokosi’s residence in Lagos.


Ifeayin Okereke was arrested alongside Olawale Dairo, John Sunday and Monday Olotu after they reportedly attempted to break into Tokosi’s apartment during a midnight attack on November 29, 2020.

They were said to have destroyed his cars after failing to enter the building before the intervention of police officers.

Obioha, who was subsequently detained by the police on charges of attempted murder and destruction of property, was released on bail based on the recognition of Olumide Akpata, his lawyer who is the president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).


The case is currently before the Lagos DPP pending their arraignment in court.
