Court orders EFCC to return houses seized from Saraki

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) move to seek the final forfeiture of two houses in Ilorin belonging to former Senate President, Bukola Saraki to the federal government, was struck out by a Federal High Court in Lagos on Thursday July 16.

Recall that the EFCC had obtained a court order for the interim forfeiture of the houses – Plots No. 10 and No. 11 Abdulkadir Road, GRA, Ilorin, Kwara State in December 2019. The anti-graft agency alleged that the properties were acquired with proceeds of unlawful activities allegedly perpetrated by Saraki while he was Kwara State Governor between 2003 and 2011.

Ruling on the case, Justice Rilwan Aikawa who stated that the evidence presented before the court was to the effect that the property was substantially financed with money paid to Saraki as a former governor, in line with the Kwara State Governor and Deputy Governor Payment of Pension Law, said EFCC’s claim of properties being acquired with illegal funds was based on mere suspicion

You all Nigerians are foolish if you think all these politicians whether PDP or APC are not the same set of greedy old evil souls. Because of your hatred for APC, you forget how PDP continued the looting of Nigeria for 16years after military looted us for their own donkey years. You the masses are the main problem cos you always cloud your judgement with sentiments and y’all will keep suffering it, you bunch of mentally challenged fucktards🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼

Greetings all, please I’m sorry for this. I work as a security guard in a private school. I couldn’t further my education after my secondary school due to many reasons plus poor background. This month make it 8 months that the school am working for is owing us salary. 8 good months without salary. Many protest staged but yet the woman kept saying no money to pay before finally Corona came and the school was shut down. I don’t know what to do again. Before now, when I’m not on duty, I go out to do painting job and other jobs just to earn a living for myself and my family but today, those jobs hardly come by because of this corona virus. Our 3 children have been starving and crying for food. Our feeding is by the mercy of our neighbours who cannot do more more than they can do. We have no where else to run to please. Please help us. Anything God has directed you to help us with, we’ll forever be thankful. Do it for the sake of our 3 kids please. Account No: zero zero two two five eight five four six five Stanbic IBTC bank You shall forever not experience what we are currently passing through. Your pocket shall never run dry. You will know no poverty in your entire life. Blessing upon blessing will continue to remain with you and your family all this I say amen.

I love his silence… He Sha moved away from Apc drama and nonsense… In a Sane country , the federal government should and suppose to reopen and review every case handled by magu with the heavy weight of corruption hanging on his neck…maybe, just maybe some if the cases he oversaw may not have been judged correctly or judged wrongly…
