Court Orders Diezani To Forfeit Property In Lagos And Port Harcourt To Nigerian Govt

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says its Lagos zonal office has secured the interim forfeiture of property linked to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, Donald Chidi Amangbo and Sequoyah Properties Limited.

The commission made the announcement in a statement by Tony Orilade, the acting head of its media and publicity.

 

“A Federal High Court, sitting in Lagos, presided over by Justice Chuka Obiozor, granted the order for interim forfeiture of the property traced to Diezani,” Orilade’s statement read.

“The property is located at Plot 9, Azikiwe Road, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. The order was pursuant to a motion ex-parte dated March 4, 2019 brought by the EFCC.”

Orilade further said: “Ruling on the motion ex-parte, Justice Obiozor held that: An interim forfeiture order of this honourable court is hereby granted, forfeiting to the Federal Government of Nigeria the property which are reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity.

“The court further ordered the EFCC to publish the order in any national daily in circulation in Nigeria and particularly in circulation in Port Harcourt and Lagos, and all persons interested in the said property are further put on notice to show cause why the final order of forfeiture of the affected property ought not to be made by this court.”

The court is expected to give a further ruling on May 9, 2019.

Nigeria Air Force Official Dies During Parachuting Exercise

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has announced the death of one Corporal Meshach Iliyah Komo, an air man, who died during a parachuting exercise in Kaduna.

Corporal Meshach Iliyah Daramola died while embarking on recurrence exercise, which is part of the paratroopers training in the Air Force special Forces after their first or initial jumps. 

A statement by Air Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, Air Force Spokesman, released on Sunday, expressed the sadness of the Airforce in announcing the passing of one of Komo.

“On behalf of officers, airmen and airwomen of the NAF, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, commiserates with the family of the late airman over this irreparable loss,” Adaramola said. “We pray that the Almighty God grants his soul eternal rest.”

The death comes one week after a blade of a NAF helicopter killed Umaru Abdul Ganimu, an aircraftman, in Bama, Borno State.

ACM Ganimu, a member of the NAF team actively engaged in counter-insurgency operation in the North-East, was passing through the side of the functioning rotor when the blade chopped off his head.

The aircraft was recovered and taken back to the airbase without any damage on tail rotor, while Ganimu was buried hours after, according to Islamic rites, at the Maimalari Military Cemetery in Maiduguri after his relatives were duly informed.

One Killed, Four Critically Wounded In Ibadan As FRSC Officials Chase Micra Driver Into A Ditch

 

At least one person died and four other passengers were seriously wounded in an auto accident that happened on Saturday evening at Moniya in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state.

The accident occurred when some officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) gave a commercial Micra car a hot chase until the car — together with the FRSC’s own — plunged into a ditch, resulting in the death of Akeem Ibrahim, the driver of the commercial car, and leaving four others passengers critically wounded. 

According to a witness, the driver of the commercial car had refused to stop at a checkpoint manned by the FRSC officials around Ojoo. The driver’s refusal to stop made the FRSC official to embark on a hot pursuit of the Micra car, with number plate Lagos 831 DH, and their van marked 1139(3).

“We saw how the FRSC officials were pursuing the unpainted commercial car,” the witness. “The officials were trying to overtake the car and in the process both of them plunged into this wide hole by the roadside.”

A source said the officials of the FRSC were chasing the car for not being painted in the normal commercial colour.  

“The FRSC were chasing the car because it was not painted in the normal commercial colour. The passengers in the car were shouting and pleading with the officials not to risk their lives, but they did not heed their pleas.

“Like a movie, we just saw and heard a deafening noise when they crashed. The Micra car somersaulted before it crashed into the ditch, followed by the FRSC van. The driver of the Micra car had stopped breathing by the time they carried him out. Other four passengers in the car were critically injured when they pulled them out. Blood covered them all over.” 

However, when the FRSC rescue team got to the scene of the accident, all they were trying to do was to cover the code on the car. The witness said their arrival was so prompt, but when they got to the scene they evacuated their van without attending to the car it chased and forced into a fatal plunge. 

He said: “There is a number on the bonnet and the side of the door. They opened the bonnet and the car door to conceal the code. If they were right, would they be doing that?”

Meanwhile, angry drivers mobilised themselves and would have attacked the FRSC official present but for the prompt intervention of five police vans who checked the irate drivers and nipped the attack in the bud.

Lamenting the death of his colleague and the unprofessionalism of the officials of the FRSC, one of the drivers, amid sobs, said: “We got here now to see the extent of the crash. Why are these FRSC officials causing deaths instead of saving lives?”
