US To Seize Kola Aluko’s House: $25m Los Angeles Mansion by Islie: 4:02pm On Sep 05, 2020
The money laundering and asset recovery section of the United States department of justice has begun proceedings to seize a mansion owned by Kola Aluko.

The DoJ has initiated proceedings at the US District Court for the Southern District of Texas to seize the mansion which is valued at $25 million and located in Los Angeles.

According to Africa Intelligence, the US government told the court that the mansion was bought to “launder ill-gotten gains” from Nigeria.

Aluko, an ally of Diezani Alison-Madueke, Nigeria’s former minister of petroleum resources, has been the subject of various investigations in Nigeria and abroad for allegedly taking part in shady oil contracts.

Properties, including a yacht used by Beyonce and Jay Z for vacation, and a New York penthouse, have been seized from him.

The US government, represented by Joshua Lee Sohn, said the Los Angeles mansion was acquired through “specified illegal activity” that justifies its confiscation.

The property, which was acquired in 2012, is a luxurious mansion of 1,400 square metres of land and comes with an infinity pool.

Apart from the application to seize the mansion, the DoJ is also on a hunt for assets acquired on American soil by Aluko and Jide Omokore, another Diezani ally.

The duo, Aluko and Omokore, reportedly won major service contracts with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) through their company, Atlantic Energy Oil.

The DoJ said the duo received multiple shipments of crude at knock-down prices, resold to trading giants at comfortable profits and invested the proceeds in high-end real estate.

The department said Aluko also bought three other mansions in the US through shell companies, one in Beverly Hills worth $15 million and two in Santa Barbara valued at $33 million.

However, these properties have not yet been involved in seizure proceedings.

Think for a moment. If this Kola Aluko has been exposed to steal this much, imagine those who stole and have succeeded in hiding it. They will just be spending their loot codedly

I support this motion because if returned back to Nigeria, it will be looted again and lost forever this time around!

All under the rule of the hero of democracy....

Too bad the succesor is just as bad

Nigeria is that country that politicans use our anger against corruption to get into office,so that they can take over from the previous looters

And Nigeria never prospers...

He's one of Dieziani's launderers. He helped funnel the money Dieziani looted so she's his boss. So houseboy can't be richer than madam. grin

I'll forever blame the military regime for the situation this country is. Most of the head of states then had no plans for this country, they just wanted to seize power and loot; all of them stole significantly from this country especially abacha. The money they stole ought to feed and nurture the growing country called Nigeria but Nigeria will be 60 by October and we're still malnourished.
I pray they seize everything this guy earned legitimately and illegitimately; including his life. He deserves to go to jail for 600 years.

And they said they want GEJ back, so that things like this will happen again. Those who miss corruption and the enjoyments it brings clamour for his return
