EFCC 'gifts' another Badeh's seized property to NEDC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has said that it got approval from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Mr. Boss Mustapha, before handing over a choice property forfeited by the late Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, to the Voice of Nigeria, VON.

The acting spokesman for the EFCC, Tony Orilade, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja, saying the SGF approved that the building located at Plot 1386 Uda Crescent, off Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja, should be handed over to VON.

Orilade said: “The SGF approved the handover of the property to VON as its corporate headquarters; it is a donation from one government agency to another and it was approved by the SGF.”

According to Orilade, the EFCC was empowered to give out such forfeited property by virtue of Section 31(4) of the EFCC Establishment Act under which the Attorney General of the Federation granted the agency the power to dispose of forfeited property.

The handing over of the property was performed by the EFCC Secretary, Olanipekun Olukoyede, who represented the acting Chairman of the commission, Ibrahim Magu, on Wednesday in Abuja.
