A Former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Ike Ekweremadu has stated in clear terms that his properties will be released back to him after EFCC investigation.

The investigation is a welcomed process to actually determine the authenticity of my acquisition, Ekweremadu Speaks out.

Recall that the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday gave permission to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to temporarily seize 40 properties traced to Ike Ekweremadu.

The order comes as Mr Ekweremadu, a former Deputy Senate President, is being held in the United Kingdom for allegedly trying to harvest David Nwamini’s kidney for their ailing daughter.

The judge, Inyang Ekwo, handed down the interim forfeiture order for his properties after hearing an ex-parte application filed by the EFCC.

An EFCC lawyer, Ibrahim Buba, moved the application for the confiscation of the assets, saying they were suspicious proceeds of crime.

The lawyer told the judge that the landed properties comprise 15 in Abuja, 10 in Enugu (Mr Ekweremadu’s home state), one in Lagos, two in the United Kingdom, three in the United States, and nine in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The EFCC claimed the assets were allegedly acquired with proceeds of fraud.

It stands on the fate of the law and EFCC to do the needful and reinstate the said properties to me, Ekweremadu Speaks Strong.
