A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the temporary forfeiture of a property linked to Diezani Alison-Madueke, former Minister of Petroleum Resources.
The property is located at Plot 9, Azikiwe Road, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The court ruling on the motion, held that, “An interim forfeiture order of this honourable court is hereby granted, forfeiting to the Federal Government of Nigeria the property which are reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity.”
Also, Obiozor ordered the EFCC to publish the order in any national daily in circulation in Nigeria “and particularly in circulation in Port Harcourt and Lagos, and all persons interested in the said property are further put on notice to show cause why the final order of forfeiture of the affected property ought not to be made by this court.”
Meanwhile, the case was adjourned to May 9, 2019 for further proceedings.
