Court Orders Forfeiture Of Kola Aluko’s $73m, N350m Properties by bamoproperty: 10:01pm On Oct 22, 2019
The Federal High Court in Lagos on Tuesday ordered the forfeiture of three landed properties belonging to Kola Aluko, an ally of a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission gave the value of the landed properties located in Abuja and Lagos as $73m and N350m.

The EFCC gave the names of the properties as Plot 3389 and Plot 3390, House 2, Margaret Thatcher Close, Asokoro Cadastral Zone, Abuja; as well as Avenue Towers, Plot 1391 Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos
the properties were reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activities.

Following an ex parte application on Tuesday, Justice Mohammed Liman ordered the properties temporarily forfeited to the Federal Government.

EFCC lawyer, Rotimi Oyedepo, had told the judge that Section 17 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Fraud Related Offences Act No. 14 2016 empowered the court to make such a forfeiture order
The properties sought to be attached are reasonably suspected to be proceeds of an unlawful diversion from the Federal Government of Nigeria.

“That the respondent’s known and provable lawful income is far less than the properties sought to be forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria,” the lawyer said in the application.

An operative of the EFCC, Sambo Mayana, said the anti-graft agency investigated Aluko after receiving from Mr Debo Adeniran, the Executive Chairman of the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, “a damning intelligence report and a petition alleging fraud, lack of transparency and unethical conduct in the transfer of production rights in the oil mining leases against the respondent and his cronies
That there are suspicious financial transactions involving the 1st respondent, KAA and Atlantic Energy Holding Limited based in the British Virgin Island.
That the company, in the course of three years, received large suspicious transfers from two sister companies, namely: Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept Limited and Atlantic Energy Brass Development Limited, based in Nigeria.”

After granting the forfeiture order, the judge directed the EFCC to publish it in a national newspaper.
He adjourned till November 12, 2019, for anyone interested in the properties to appear before him to show cause why they should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Am sure all the recovered loot from politicians has clocked billions of dollars.
EFCC is doing a good job.
We can only celebrate news like this when we begin to see the positive effect on the economy.
Imagine the recently recovered Abacha loot has been spent by this administration yet Nigeria is now ranked as poverty capital in the world, they are still borrowing, increasing taxes, planning to introduce tolls, increasing bank charges etc..

Apc must give account of how this money was spent on the poor! We must demand accounting of this spending, not to start playing politics

They recovered abacha’s loot and shared it to Nigerians then they went to borrow money to fund capital projects.. is this government not a fraudulent conduit pipe for corruption?

Buhari's tenure of 1982-85 is known for the harsh policies the government implemented to protect itself, with many Nigerians, who were seen as a security threat by the government, being detained, jailed, and even executed during his rule. He is well known for bringing recession and anti people policies!

Someone who after successfully overthrowing the democratically elected government of Shigari, Buhari justified the Army's actions in 1983 by defining the civilian government as having been corrupt and hopeless. Buhari was quick to indefinitely suspend Nigeria's 1979 constitution. This man should have been jailed and sent to the gallows! Yet he was repackaged and forced down our throat to be president! Shame on all of us..

Are you aware Buhari got into office on the 31st of December 1983 which actually means January 1, 1984?

Leaving office August 21 - 1985.

Nigeria was already on its knees before taking office.

Don't always take what you've been told as gospel.

Do your own research.

You would justify it won't you?

But simple arithmetic would be difficult for you to embark upon.

Divide 20 billion dollars by 200 million Nigerians and tell me if that figure would make everyone ok.

Let me help you out.... that would be 100 dollars to every man, woman and child.

Make of that what you may.
