Forfeited houses: Saraki asks court to lift order, challenges jurisdiction

A former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Thursday asked a Federal High Court in Lagos to discharge an order temporarily forfeiting two of his Ikoyi houses to the Federal Government.

Justice Liman had on October 21 ordered the temporary forfeiture of the houses, “lying and known as No. 17A McDonald Road, Ikoyi,” to the Federal Government.

The judge ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to publish the temporary forfeiture order in a national newspaper.

He adjourned till Thursday for anyone interested in the houses to appear before him to show cause why they should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

At the resumed proceedings Thursday, EFCC counsel, Abdullahi Idris, told the judge that the order was published in The Nation newspaper as ordered by the judge.
