Ikoyi Houses Forfeiture: Justice Mohammed Liman Misled By EFCC To Issue Order - SENATOR BUKOLA SARAKI

Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki & Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu 

ABUJA, NIGERIA - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), misled Justice Mohammed Liman of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi. Lagos State, Nigeria into granting an order of temporary forfeiture of two of my properties in Ikoyi, Lagos State, Nigeria.

This assertion came from the immediate past Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Monday (today) evening.

It would be recalled that Justice Mohammed Liman had on Monday morning directed the temporary forfeiture of two properties located in Ikoyi and owned by Bukola Saraki, to the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN).

But Bukola Saraki in a series of tweets on Monday evening, revealed that his attention had been drawn to an order granted by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos pursuant to an ex-parte application by the EFCC.

“It is my belief that the Judge was misled into granting this order and was not presented with the full position of the law or the facts.

“It is my belief that the Court was not informed of a pending Order of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja restraining the EFCC from taking any steps regarding the seizure of the property in question pending the determination of a suit filed before that Court,” he said.

Bukola Saraki equally insisted that he had the belief that the Court was not made aware that the property in question formed part of the judgment of the Court given on July 6, 2018 where the Supreme Court declared that the source of funds for the purchase of the property was not illicit as claimed by the prosecution.
