Former NDDC MD Forfeits N250Million To Government

Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC)

A former Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), has forfeited a sum of N250,000,000 (Two Hundred And Fifty Million Naira only) to the Federal Government.

Justice R.M Aikawa of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos, recently granted the final forfeiture of the money, based on an application for final forfeiture of the fund by the Lagos zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission( EFCC).

The EFCC had approached the court, seeking the forfeiture of the fund, arguing that it was traced, recovered and reasonably suspected to be part of proceeds of unlawful activities.

Specifically, investigation by the Commission revealed that a contractor with the NDDC, received funds for a purported contract and transferred N250million, suspected as kickbacks, to a real estate company, for the acquisition of a property in favour of the former MD of the NDDC.

The EFCC, armed with enough facts and figures involved in the transaction, approached the court for the forfeiture of the money to the government. Justice Aikawa granted the order of final forfeiture accordingly.
