Court orders forfeiture of Property belonging to Diezani Alison-Madueke
Justice Chuka Obiozor of the Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered the forfeiture of another property linked to the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Justice Obiozor ordered that the expanse of land in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, allegedly belonging to Diezani be forfeited to the Federal Government following an application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The commission in its application told the judge that the land, “measuring 7,903.71 – 8,029.585 square metres” and situated at Plot 9, Azikiwe Road, Old GRA (UAC Property on Forces Avenue), Port Harcourt, was reasonably suspected to part of proceeds of unlawful activities.
This forfeiture comes a few days after the same Federal High court ordered forfeiture of Diezani’s 2,149 pieces of jewelry and customized gold iPhone worth $40 million, to the Federal government.
