N2trn Seized Asset: Reps Accuse ECC, Customs, AG, Of Plot To Derail Probe

Published

on

House-of-Reps

The House of Representatives, yesterday, accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Nigeria Customs Service and Accountant General to the Federation, AGF, of deliberate attempts to derail investigation into the N2 trillion worth of seized and recovered assets by the EFCC since its creation.

The House had last July, passed a resolution which mandated its committee on drugs, narcotics and financial crimes to carry out an investigative inquiry into the matter and report back within four weeks.

The committee, headed by Jagaba Adams Jagaba (PDP, Kaduna), had started the investigation last July when the speaker, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, directed that all committees’ activities be suspended to allow members participate fully in the voting on constitution amendment process.

Jagaba in a statement said of the several stakeholders from who the committee requested information, EFCC, Nigeria Customs Service, Accountant General’s Office and Real Estate Derivatives, had continued to deliberately withhold from the committee the much needed information.

He explained that it was in view of this development that he could categorically state that the National Assembly and, indeed, all Nigerians had been taken for granted.

“This is not only shocking and unfortunate but highly disappointing coming from an agency set up by an Act of the National Assembly to fight corruption,” Jagaba said.

He however vowed, that the committee would not relent in its investigation, adding that “for the avoidance of doubt, the committee is not happy and will not hesitate to invoke the powers conferred on it by the constitution to the fullest to compel the aforementioned agencies to comply.”

It would be recalled that former chairmen of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, and Mrs. Farida Waziri, as well as Managing Director of Assets Management Company of Nigeria, AMCON, Mr Mustafa Chike-Obi, shunned the investigative hearing into seized assets allegedly worth over N2 trillion on July 14.

Both past chairmen of the anti-graft agency were absent at the hearing.
Also absent was the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

This development did not go down well with members of the committee who tongue-lashed the CEOs for failing to appear before them.

Jagaba had to threaten to summon them or issue a bench warrant before they appeared the following day with a catalogue of excuses.

Till the two-day public hearing drew its curtain on July 17, both Nuhu Ribadu and Farida Waziri refused to show up.

The AMCON MD and other stakeholders, however, appeared after Jagaba’s threat to clear themselves and their agencies.

Some of the seized assets include posh cars, private jets, mansions scattered all over the globe, communication equipment and warehouses. [Vanguard]

In what will come across as a really startling development, a dead man has been made to sit at his own funeral.

According to Trinidad Express, the dead man was embalmed into a sitting position, placed in the tray of a hearse and given an open-air last ride past the Office of the Prime Minister on the way to his funeral.

Dressed in a suit and in a chair, murdered Che Lewis was placed in the back of a pick-up van by Dennie’s Funeral Home and driven around Port of Spain on Wednesday.

Witnesses and social media users were stunned.

TTPS Road Safety Co-ordinator Brent Batson told Express via a What’s App message that the funeral home’s manner of transporting the deceased will be investigated.

Batson said, “The TTPS is disappointed in the reckless behavior engaged in by a funeral home being circulated on social media whereby persons were seen seated in the vehicle tray seemingly as part of a funeral procession. Carrying persons in a dangerous manner is an offence Regulation 38 Rule 17 of the Motor Vehicle Road Traffic Act (MVRTA) with a $1,000 penalty and the TTPS will be continuing investigation into funeral company’s conduct on the road.”

Several videos of the ‘last ride’ were posted on social media, with many commenting that this was “proof that Trinidad is not a real place”, while others said they idea was only novel in Trinidad but was done in other countries.

Lewis, 29, and his father Adlay Lewis, 49, were shot and killed on November 15 at their home at First Trace, Bagatelle Road, Diego Martin.

His funeral was streamed live on social media, but not all the viewers were aware that the man sitting at the entrance to the church was the deceased.

There was also a question as to why he was not wearing a mask.

The funeral home informed that because of the “unique funeral, the church was astonished and refused the entrance of Che”.

Following the funeral service at the St John The Evangelist R.C Church at Church Street, Diego Martin the bodies of father and son were interred the St John The Evangelist Cemetery.

The funeral home also intends introducing a new form of body disposal to Trinidad and Tobago.

It is know as alkaline hydrolysis, a process for the disposal of human and pet remains using lye and heat.
