The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has released an updated list of landed properties forfeited by an unnamed ‘top military officer’ to the federal government of Nigeria.

The new list contains 24 landed assets valued at N10.9 billion, a sharp increase from the N3billion given as the worth of the properties in the commission’s earlier statement on Monday.

A judge of the Federal High Court in Abuja, Nkeoya Maha, issued an order of final forfeiture of the assets to the federal government on Monday, Wilson Uwujaren, the spokesperson for the EFCC, had disclosed in the earlier statement.

However, in another statement on Tuesday, Mr Uwujaren listed 24 sets of assets worth N10.9 billion seized from the military officer in Kano, Kaduna, Borno and Cross River states.

Speaking with newsmen, the EFCC’s spokesperson confirmed that the list is an update on Monday’s statement, which was without a list of the seized assets.

According to the commission, the assets include about nine filling stations with a total of 300 pumps scattered in Kano.

They also include an LPG plant with 30 shops, an event centre, a three storey plaza with 28 shops, and a block industry, all in Kano.

“The 24 properties scattered across Kano, Kaduna, Borno and Cross River states, comprise land, shopping complex, gas station and fuel stations cumulatively valued at N10, 935,000,000.00. (Ten Billion, Nine Hundred and Thirty-Five Million Naira),” the statement stated.

EFCC had earlier disclosed that the assets were controlled by the military officer through proxies including the late General, Aminu Maude, and some companies such as Atlasfield Integrated Services Nigeria Limited, Marhaba Events Place, Aflac Plastics and Atlasfield Gas Plant Limited.

The judge, Nkeoye Maha, on Monday, granted the final forfeiture order in a ruling on the application by EFCC’s lawyers, Cosmos Ugwu and Musa Isah.
