Court Declines Move Seeking Final Forfeiture Of Saraki’s Properties

By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – A move seeking the final forfeiture of two properties belonging to former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has been decline by the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, led by Justice Mohammed Liman, who gave the ruling on Monday, June 8, 2020, on the grounds of insufficient and conflicting affidavit evidence filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to Liman, the documents submitted to the court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were insufficient for the granting of a forfeiture order as it did prove that Kwara State government funds were used in repaying Saraki’s debts, advising the anti graft watchdog to call its witnesses to clarify the contradictions in its documents at the next adjourned date for hearing on the matter.
