Crime: Primary School Teacher and Others Forfeit N110.4m To FG

77 Naa

January 13,  an Abuja Federal High Court has requested the between time relinquishment of N110.4 million followed to the financial balances of one James Erebuoye and seven different suspects by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission (ICPC) for supposedly being proceeds of crime.

A statement given on Thursday by the ICPC representative, Azuka Ogugua, said, an ex-parte motion filed by Raheem Adesina for ICOC before Justice D. Okorowa, further prayed  for an order of interim forfeiture of a Toyota Lexus Jeep and a Toyota Venza vehicle, including an Ipad gadget.

The statement clarified that the properties were seized by the Commission from Erebuoye and his accomplices who were said to have profited from over N500 million in unlawful monies reserved in the record of an elementary teacher, Mrs. Roseline Uche Egbuha.

ICPC said, it observed that N110,364,592.4 was secretly moved at some point in 2020, from the faccount of the elementary teacher, who was being researched for money laundering and other fraud, into different accounts possessed by Erebuoye and eight different people, including two organizations.

“The money to be forfeited includes N17.4 million that was transferred to the bank account of Erebuoye, N14.2 million to an account owned by one Ojo Alonge, N16.4 million to a company called DY Bako and Sons Ltd and N30.8 million to another company known as Dorason Construction ltd.

“The order for interim forfeiture also covers the sums of N7.1 million traced to an account owned by Owoyemi Mayowa, N8.2 million, and N6.5 million traced to the bank accounts of Emon Aje Okune and Maureen Chidinma, respectively”, the statement added.

Mrs Egbuha, an instructor at Ozala Primary School, Abagana, Anambra State, was captured in June 2020 by the Commission for supposedly washing N550 million.
