- The ICPC says the properties include an estate of 60 buildings at Sabon Lugbe southwest extension and a property located at Goza Airport Road Abuja
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has secured an interim forfeiture order on two assets located at Sabon Lugbe, Abuja.
The spokesperson for the commission, Rasheedat Okoduwa, in a statement obtained by Legit.ng disclosed that the interim forfeiture order was issued following a motion ex parte filed by counsel to ICPC, John Paul Okwor.
The commission disclosed that Justice Okon Abang of Federal High Court sitting in Abuja granted the order against the assets linked to an erstwhile staff of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Adenike Ishola Bintu and her company, Faith Winners Properties Nigeria Ltd.
The ICPC said the properties include an estate of 60 buildings at Plot No. MF1296 (10.9ha), Sabon Lugbe southwest extension (Goza Airport Road), Abuja, and a property at Plot No. ED1295 (9.6ha) located at Sabon Lugbe southwest extension (Goza Airport Road), Abuja.
The anti-graft commission said Bintu, a deputy commandant, and her company are standing trial before the Federal Capital Territory High Court for using her company to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public into subscribing for allocation in a proposed housing estate while passing off the said estate project as a collaboration with her employer.
It said in the course of the trial, Bintu jumped bail, and noted that available information indicated that she is out of the country.
Meanwhile, despite convicting several hundreds of criminals and recovering billions of naira, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu has told his team that there is more work to do.
The EFCC revealed in a statement it issued on Sunday, December 15 that Magu challenged staff of the Commission to be prepared for more work and bigger tasks ahead.
The EFCC boss was said to have given the charge in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital on Saturday, December 14, 2019, while presenting awards to outstanding staff of the Commission’s Ibadan zonal office.
