The face of the unnamed top military officer whose assets worth billions of naira were seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been revealed as Late General Aminu Maude.
Naija News reports that the anti-graft agency in a statement on Monday, said it has secured the final forfeiture of the properties worth N11 billion to the Nigerian Government.
EFCC in an update of the ill-gotten assets seized from Late General Aminu Maude gave an extended list of the assets.
EFCC said they are worth N10.9billion, higher than the N3.07 billion stated on Monday.
Although the EFCC did not release the name of the military officer in its update, its earlier statement said the forfeited assets belonged to late General Aminu-Kano Maude.
According to the EFCC, Justice N.E. Maha of the Federal High Court in Abuja granted the order for the final forfeiture of the properties on Monday.
The agency stated that the forfeiture follows an application filed by the EFCC in May 2020, after the court granted an order for interim forfeiture of the properties.
The court also had ordered the publication of notices in national newspapers, inviting persons with interest in the properties to show cause why they should not be finally forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
