Justice P. Mallong of Federal High Court, Kaduna on Thursday November 14, 2019 ordered the temporary forfeiture of a three bedroom bungalow, belonging to one Yohanna Adamu to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Adamu is being prosecuted by the Commission on a one-count charge of obtaining by false pretence to the tune of N2.5million, (Two Million, Five Hundred Thousand Naira), having been accused of collecting the said sum from a petitioner on the pretext of purchasing two Peugeot 301 cars for him in a purported Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited auction sales.
Justice Mallong’s order followed a motion for an interim forfeiture of the property, filed by EFCC’s counsel S.H.Sa‘ad.
It could be recalled that the defendant has a similar matter before Justice Z.B.Abubakar of the Federal High Court, Kaduna, who had to hand over his own aspect of Adamu’s case to Justice Mallong.
Hearing on the one count charge was adjourned until December 2, 2019.
