ICPC seizes N4.8bn property belonging to Yar’adua Foundation, others

Director sentenced 7 years for defrauding job seekers

Shehu Yar’adua Foundation and 29 other firms are going to lose N4.8 billion plots of land and buildings to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

ICPC Spokesperson, Mrs Rasheedat Okoduwa made the disclosure in a Press Statement in Abuja in which she said that the properties included 22.9 hectares of undeveloped land, one plaza, and a block of six two-bedroom flats located in Wuse, Zone 1, Abuja.

“These belong to Shehu Musa Yar’adua Foundation, Vibrant Issuance Brokers, Millard Fuller Foundation, Maibuhu Farm and Construction Limited, Gabcon Enterprises Limited and a host of others.

“In the course of investigations, the alleged owners of the property disclaimed ownership.

“The move to seize the property spread around Abuja, follows a petition to the ICPC by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) accusing the companies of defaulting in tax payments to the tune of N288.2 million.”

Okoduwa said that section 37 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000 empowered the commission to seize assets alleged to be subject of an offence under the law.

“While Section 48 authorises it to apply to a High Court for an order of forfeiture within 12 months of the date of seizure,” she said.
