FG Seizes 40 Ekweremadu’s Assets & Obtains An Interim Forfeiture Order
Ekweremadu and his wife are currently on trial in the UK for alleged organ harvesting.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Ike Ekweremadu, the former Deputy Senate President, owns 40 landed properties, which an Abuja Federal High Court ordered to be temporarily forfeited on Friday.
The interim forfeiture order affects 10 of Ekweremadu’s properties in Enugu, 3 in the United States of America (USA), 2 in the United Kingdom (UK), 1 in Lagos, 9 in Dubai, and 15 in the Federal Capital Territory.
Following an ex-parte motion filed and submitted by Ibrahim Buba on behalf of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC, the trial judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, issued the ruling.
In a decision on the request, the judge directed the EFCC to publish the interim forfeiture order of the properties in a national daily within seven days of the day the order was made.
Ekweremadu and his wife are now on trial in the UK for alleged organ harvesting.
However, Justice Ekwo has postponed the case until December 5, 2022, pending a report on any public objections to the properties.
