Nigerian court orders interim forfeiture of 56 houses linked to Diezani Alison-Madueke (Photos)

A Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday ordered the interim forfeiture of 56 houses valued at $22 million ($21,982,224 or N3.3 billion) allegedly bought between 2011 and 2013 by a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

Justice Abdulaziz Anka made the order following an application filed by the Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC.

Justice Anka authorised the EFCC to appoint a firm to manage the properties and gave the respondents 14 days to show cause why the properties should not be permanently forfeited to the federal government.

The order came two weeks after the anti-graft agency said it had traced N47 billion and $487.5 million to the former minister.

On Tuesday, the judge directed the EFCC to publish the order for interim forfeiture in any national newspaper and adjourned till September 8.
