The Federal High Court in Lagos day ordered the temporary forfeiture of two additional properties in Lagos linked to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.
The said properties, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, are valued at four point seven million dollars.
The anti-graft agency listed them as Penthouse 21 building 5, Block C, 11th floor, Bella Vista Estate, Banana Island, Ikoyi and Penthouse 22, Block B, Admiralty Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos.
Counsel for the EFCC, Mr. Anselem Ozioko, said the anti-graft agency reasonably suspected that the properties were procured with proceeds of alleged unlawful activities of Diezani.
Justice Mojisola Olatoregun ordered the temporary forfeiture of the properties after entertaining an ex parte application by the EFCC counsel.
