The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday said it has recovered a total of 24 landed property from a serving Army General worth N10.9 billion, in an update on the list of assets seized by the anti-graft agency from the unamed military officer.
The EFCC has on Monday said it has siezed assets valued at N3 billion from the military top brass in a statement. However, the Tuesday statement further revealed an updated version of the seized property.
However, in June last year, the anti-graft agency had sealed up assets linked to a Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), Jafaru Mohammed, a Brigadier General.
The Operatives of the EFCC had sealed off 21 properties in Kano in June last year as part of investigation into a corruption case involving Mohammed.
But it was not clear if the latest forfeiture was the same as the property seized last year from the Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the ONSA, Mohammed or the latest case involved another Army General.
In the previous statement by the commission’s Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, the Judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, Justice Nkeoya Maha, issued an order of final forfeiture of the assets to the Federal Government.
However, in another statement issued late on Tuesday, Uwujaren listed 24 sets of assets, valued at N10.9 billion, seized from the military officer in Kano, Kaduna, Borno and Cross River states, respectively.
The Commission listed the assets to include about nine filling stations, with a total of 300 pumps spread across Kano State.
Others include an LPG plant with 30 shops, an event centre, a three-storey plaza with 28 shops and a block industry, all located in Kano.
“The 24 properties, which are spread within Kano, Kaduna, Borno and Cross River states, comprise land, shopping complex, gas station and fuel stations, cumulatively valued at N10,935,000,000.00. (Ten Billion, Nine Hundred and Thirty-Five Million Naira),” the statement stated.
