    Court orders EFCC to seize Perm Sec’s N664m, $137,680

    A Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday ordered the interim forfeiture of N664,475,246.6 and $137,680.11 recovered from a serving Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, Dr. Clement Illoh Onubuogo.

    Vacation judge Justice Abdulaziz Anka, made the order following an application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

    The judge also ordered the EFCC to seize a property described as “Clement Illoh’s Mansion” located at Ikom Quarters, Issala-Azegba in Delta State and a hotel at No. 19 Madue Nwafor Street, off Achala Ibuzo Road, Asaba, Delta State.

    The EFCC counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, told the court that both buildings belong to the permanent secretary and were reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity.

    After granting the order, Justice Anka directed the EFCC to notify the permanent secretary, in whose possession the properties were found, to appear before the court and show cause within 14 days why the properties should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

    The court also directed the publication of the interim orders in any national newspaper for any interested person to appear before the judge to show cause within 14 days why the order should not be made permanent.
