Court freezes accounts linked to former Lagos governor, Ambode, over N9.9bn alleged fraud


A Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday ordered the freezing of three bank accounts allegedly linked to the Lagos State government and former governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, over an alleged N9.9 billion fraud.

Chuka Obiozor, the judge, ordered the temporary freezing of the accounts, domiciled in Zenith Bank, Access Bank, and First City Monument Bank, following an exparte application brought by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

According to the EFCC, N9.9 billion was paid from the state government’s accounts into the FCMB account opened on September 17, 2018, and operated by Adewale Adesanya, the permanent secretary in the Office of the Chief of Staff to Mr Ambode.

The anti-graft commission urged the court to freeze the account pending the conclusion of their investigation and possible prosecution of Mr Adesanya.

In an affidavit filed in support of the ex parte application, Kungmi Daniel, a member of the EFCC investigating team, said the schedule of the FCMB account showed how Mr Adesanya and the other signatories to the account made fraudulent fund transfers into the account from the accounts of the Lagos State Government.

“The trend in the account is that the account always witnessed huge inflow from Lagos State Government in the above-scheduled accounts managed by the respondent (Adesanya),” the investigator said.

He said the commission received an intelligence on the transfers, analysed it, and found it worthy of investigation.

The EFCC prayed the court to grant it an order to temporarily attach and take over the accounts to enable it to conclude its investigations.

“There have been concerted efforts and attempts to dissipate the contents of the accounts listed in the schedule to this application,” the EFCC said.

“Without freezing the nominated accounts and temporarily forfeiting the money to the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, there is no way the fraud being perpetrated using the scheduled accounts can be stopped.”

The judge, after listening to the EFCC’s lawyer, Mohammed Abbas, ordered the ”suspension” of the accounts and adjourned till September 9.

Thank God we have a President who does not intervene in the rule of law.
A president that jailed 2 APC governors in his first time.
But the children of hate and perdition will always try to keep all such information away from the young wailers.


This is why the power of immunity that the evil and corrupt party brough into our constitution should be revoked and removed ASAP.
It has done more harms than good.

Ganduje the thief will face this kinda judgement too we are sure, they will all be taking to court, if found guilty, they will vomit all they have stolen

This is the same kinda immunity The thief Fayose enjoyed in Ekiti for 8 years before he was invited weeks after he finished his tenure.

The supporters of thieves, violence and criminals are so much aware of that particular Fayose's issue, but they are still wailing that Thief Ganduje should be tried now, all because they don't want peace in the nation, when they know the evil law keeping him on the seat by their corrupt Athiefkwu and co.

Hypocrites everywhere.
Anyone supporting all these evil and corrupt politicians will all end miserable as the thieves they support.
Joy and happiness will be far from their miserable lives.
They can never escape it.

Will keep on posting this...


The only solution to this country's problems is to reduce her President's, governor's, senator's, minister's, honourable's, chairman's, councillor's salary and allowances then you'll see patriotic people take over them sits and turn her situation around...... This is therefore called revolution

People are busy insulting themselves on social media, but politicians continue stealing and laughing at them. Until Nigerians unite and fight together with one voice, our government officials will continue stealing billions, live like kings and nothing will happen
