The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has identified another property of the former Delta State Governor, James Ibori, located at No 5, Alpha Beach Road , Lekki, Lagos. The mansion is suspected to be one of the proceeds of money laundering for which the ex-governor was convicted in the United Kingdom.In a statement by its spokesman, Mr. Wilson Uwujiaren, the anti-graft agency said that the property was discovered on Thursday at No. 5, Alpha Beach Road, Lekki in Lagos by its operatives.
The EFCC said the property “is suspected to be one of the proceeds of money laundering for which the ex-governor was convicted in the UK.
“The attachment of the property is the fallout of continued efforts by the anti- graft agency to trace, find and seize properties that were acquired with stolen funds by the former governor.
“The property is a mansion with a mini reception at the ground floor and a detached ‘Boys Quarters’.
“Two occupants of the house, Moses Abu and Kaycee Kasim, were interrogated and made useful statements.”
According to pictures released by the commission, the house also has a swimming pool.
Items recovered from the house include sewing machines, mannequins and other personal effects.
They were all packed in cartons and sealed by EFCC operatives before being moved to its office in Lagos.
Information Nigeria recalls that James Ibori was convicted on April 18, 2012 by a United Kingdom crown court and sentenced to a 13-year jail term for corruption and money laundering.
