The Federal High Court in Lagos has ordered that a $37.5m mansion on Banana Island, Lagos linked to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.
The court also ordered that the sums of $2.7m and N84.5m realised as rents on the property should equally be forfeited to the Federal Government.
The orders were made today by Justice Chuka Obiozor, following a motion on notice argued before him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
The anti-graft agency had on July 19, 2017, obtained a court order to temporarily seize the property.
