Justice Akintayo Aluko of a Lagos Federal High Court Friday ordered final forfeiture to the federal government, a vacant plot of land situated at Plot 13, Block I, Oniru Chieftaincy Family Private Estate, Lekki, Lagos, linked to Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, a former Nigeria’s petroleum Minister.
The forfeiture order was sequel to the application filed by Mr Ansalem B. Ozioko, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) head of legal section, but moved and argued by Mr Abbas Mohammed, a legal officer in the commission.
