The EFCC has reportedly seized properties worth N1.350billion belonging to Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose. The properties are said to be located in highbrow areas of Lagos and Abuja. Four in Lagos and two in Abuja.

The houses seized are located at: 44, Osun Crescent and 32, Yedseram Street in Maitama, Abuja; and houses 3, 4, 6, and 9 in Plot 100, Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

According to the Nation

 All the houses in Lagos were paid for by Abiodun Agbele, the detained associate of the governor who is currently under investigation.
Agbele allegedly paid over N880 million for the Lagos properties.
Sources said the duplexes were “acquired within 180 days in office by Fayose.”
“We have discovered that he paid for the houses through his associate’s company, De-Privateer Limited of Agbele.
“De-Privateer remitted slush funds into three accounts including FCMB (0519693019), First Bank of Nigeria (1000070240) and Zenith Bank (1014016919).
“The payments were made as follows: First Bank—N40m (29/1/15); N39.5m (30/1/15); N132.5 (30/1/ 15); N3.2m (4/2/15); N980, 000(4/2/15); N200m (17/2/15); N47m (13/2/15); N50m (13/2/15).
“The lodgements in an account in Zenith Bank (1014016919) included N42.5m (9/4/15); N25m (23/4/15); and N229m (6/3/15).
“About N200million was paid into FCMB account 0519693019 on March 9, 2015.”
He said the anti-graft agency seized the properties by invoking sections 28 and 34 of the EFCC (Establishment Act) 2004 and Section 13(1) of the Federal High Court Act, 2004 which empower the anti-graft agency to invoke Interim Assets Forfeiture Clause.
The properties were seized recently over allegations that Fayose received N1.219bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser when Col. Sambo Dasuki through a former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro. They are also accusing Fayose of allegedly receiving bribe money from contractors in the state.
