A property located at Plot 9, Azikiwe Road, Old GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State is to be temporarily forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
This is the order of Justice Chuka Obiozor of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.
Last week Friday, the judge granted the order following a motion exparte filed and argued by the EFCC.
The property has been linked to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, a Lawyer, Donald Chidi Amangbo and a company Sequoyah Properties Limited.

Ruling on the motion ex-parte, Justice Obiozor held that: “An interim forfeiture order of this honourable court is hereby granted, forfeiting to the Federal Government of Nigeria the property which are reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity.”
The court further directed the EFCC to publish the order in any national daily in circulation in Nigeria “and particularly in circulation in Port Harcourt and Lagos, and all persons interested in the said property are further put on notice to show cause why the final order of forfeiture of the affected property ought not to be made by this court.”
The court then adjourned further proceedings till May 9, 2019.
