CPC Secures Final Forfeiture Order Against 25 Properties Belonging To Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation and Ors

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has secured a final forfeiture order against 25 properties in Abuja belonging to Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation and 24 other registered entities.

A Federal Capital Territory High (FCT) Court, presided over by Justice Baba H. Yusuf, ruled on an ex-parte application filed by ICPC.

The order obtained by the Commission against the properties is for their owners’ alleged failure to pay their taxes as at when due, for which the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) had to prepare a schedule of tax obligations against them.

According to the Commission, the companies were among 29 entities that had been earlier approached with a net N8.6 billion tax liability, but they denied ownership of the properties.

Consequently, ICPC filed an ex-parte application in the FCT High Court under Section 17 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act, 2006, seeking an Interim Forfeiture Order against the properties of the tax defaulters, which was granted.

In compliance with the order of the court, the Commission published notices in national newspapers calling for persons having interest in all or any of the forfeited properties to appear and “show cause” why the said properties should not be finally forfeited to the federal government.

That being so, three companies — Frankdiowo Nigeria Limited, Kati Nigeria Limited and R.Timmermann & Co Nigeria Limited – appeared in court to explain why their properties should not be finally forfeited by urging the court to discharge them.

However, amongst them, only Frankdiowo Nigeria Limited showed “good cause” and was discharged, while the other two will return to court for the hearing of their affidavits.

Many of the forfeited properties are located in central highbrow areas of Abuja such as Wuye, Jahi, Utako, Wuse, Garki II, etc.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!|
