A school allegedly belonging to Unoma Akpabio, the wife of the immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, has been seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
It was learnt that the seizure was part of investigations into the former governor who has been accused of alleged N108bn fraud during his tenure from 2007 to 2015.
One of our correspondents who visited the school, St. John Paul II School, in Shelter Afrique, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, observed that the school had been marked “under investigation by EFCC.”
A senior employee of the school, who refused to disclose his identity, only asked one of our correspondents to observe the ambience around the school.
According to him, the school is serene with normal academic activities taking place.
The spokesman for the EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached on the telephone on Wednesday.
However, a senior operative at the commission confirmed that the school had been seized.
