EFCC seizes N7bn assets of  INEC dead director
By Ise-Oluwa Ige
Posted to the Web: Wednesday, September 06, 2006



ABUJA ? THE Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has secured a court order, confiscating alleged ill-gotten assets, worth about N7 billion, belonging to a deceased Director of Finance and Supplies of INEC, Pastor Timothy Olufemi Akanni.
The assets include cash in local and foreign currencies; landed properties in choice areas in both Lagos and Abuja; shares in bluechip companies; registered schools, bakeries and expensive cars, among others.
The order was granted ex-parte by the vacation judge, Justice Anwuri Chikere, upon a request by the anti-graft commission on behalf of the Federal Government.
The Commission had told the court that it was investigating Pastor Akanni for various weighty complaints touching on conspiracy, abuse of public office, diversion of public funds and money laundering.
Besides, EFCC alleged that relations of the late Akanni and the deceased?s cronies who were still being investigated over some petitions were making frantic attempts to withdraw mony from the accounts of the companies sought to be forfeited, being alleged proceeds of fraud.
The anti-graft commission proffered arguments before the court on why all the assets must be confiscated, supporting same with affidavit evidence.
The high court judge ordered all the assets and properties listed on two separate schedules by EFCC belonging to the late Pastor Akanni to be temporarily forfeited to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
The deceased director stripped of all his assets by the anti-graft commission was a pastor of a pentecostal church in Abuja until his death in the October 22 Bellview Flight 210 crash at Lisa in Ogun State. He was one of the 117 passengers that lost their lives.
The interim order confiscating his assets, two weeks ago, was one of the last set of orders granted by Justice Anwuri Chikere of the Federal High Court, Abuja before she was transferred to the Kaduna Division of the court.

Pastor Akanni was a director of INEC between 1996 and 2005 during which he allegedly acquired a huge amount of money. No petition was raised when he was in office as INEC director.
Trouble started shortly after he died when his assets were to be shared. Pastor Akanni was said to have married another woman legally without the knowledge of the only wife known to the family. The new wife who claimed to be legally married to Pastor Akanni with children showed up in Akanni?s home, claiming to be his wodow.
The only wife at home never believed herself, given the fact that her husband was a respected man of God. But when the  new wife tendered documentary evidence to back up her claim, the first wife known to the family vowed never to recognise her and that the alleged new wife and her children would not benefit from the deceased?s assets.
All efforts to make the first wife  see reason proved abortive, a development that provoked petitions to EFCC for confiscation of huge sums of money totalling one billion in two local accounts maintained by the deceased before he died.
When EFCC moved in, it was discovered that the assets the two women were fighting over were insignificant, given others owned by Pastor Akanni in and outside the shores of Nigeria.
Assets worth N7 billion were uncovered by the EFCC. Investigations are still on-going in the matter since some accounts were traced beyond the shores of the country.
But while investigations were on-going, efforts were made to tamper with the res of the petitions, a development that made the Chairman of EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, to apply to court for confiscation of various assets already uncovered and believed to have been acquired with proceeds from ill-gotten wealth.
The uncovered assets, belonging to the deceased pastor, now confiscated, and listed in two different schedules include a house at Victoria Garden City located on Plot H 70, Road 42, VGC; a plot of land measuring 3,510square metre at Banana Island, Foreshore Estate, Ikoyi; a plot registered as 25/25/26 of plot 4, block 5, measuring 1145.5sq metre; 4 terrace houses at Parkview Estate, Lagos; property on 11, Olaosebikan street, off Alli Street,  Okota; Victory Plaza located at Area 11, Garki, Abuja and two duplexes situated at 13, Mississippi street, Maitama.

Others include a two-bedroom flat at Gaduwa street, Abuja; four bedroom duplex located on Plot B 10, Prince and Princess Estate, Duboyi, Abuja; plot of land at Danube street, Maitama; two-bedroom bungalow at Plot E 16 at Prince and Princess, Duboyi, Abuja; a unit of duplex at Abuja Model City (Adkan Estate), Gwarinpa II, Abuja and four-bedroom detached duplex at Gwarinpa II, Abuja.
Also seized are his Unity High School on Plot 31, Phase 4, opposite General Hospital, Kubwa, Abuja; Unity Montessori Nursery and Primary School, Phase 4, Kubwa, Abuja; Unity Bakery in Kubwa and  a property located on Plot 46, Ajose street, Ilasamaja.
Also on the schedule of seized items are his properties on Plot 342 Dakibiya {P&P}, Abuja with right of occupancy;  plot of land at Gosa; plot 1031B, Kaura District in the name of Victory Bakery and Confectionary Limited; plots 3114, 3044, Asokoro extension; plot MP/54155, Mpape layout, Abuja and plot 1016 in Katampe District, Abuja.
Also temporarily forfeited are Land Rover Jeep with registration number BH 559APP; Volkswagen Touareg with registration number KF 242AAA, Lagos; Toyota Camry 2.2L automatic with chassis  number 200060090; Toyota Hiace bus with chassis number 7005913; Toyota Hiace bus with chassis number 7005050 and Toyota Hiace bus with chassis  number 7006224.

Cooking Forum / WINE-HALAL OR HARAM?
« on: November 24, 2004, 09:44:17 AM »
I was watching a cooking programme on TV and I noticed that the chef kept on adding wine to the cooking.I love cakes and sometime back someone said that tasty cakes have a touch of wine added to them.My question is -is it okay to take such foods since the wine added to them has actually been cooked? Maybe it wont be intoxicating anymore after ta sha wuta??

Islam / Are you ready to die now?
« on: October 13, 2004, 10:14:04 PM »
As Muslims,we expect to die and go straight to Paradise.Yet what do we do to deserve entry into this everlasting place of peace?
Everday those who work get up early,dress and leave for the office.They come back in the evening ,eat,watch TV.Some sleep,some socialise a bit ,others attend tiredly to their family before exhaustion takes over.Some dont even come back home till the family is asleep.
So when do we have time to really attend to the wife/husband and kids?When do we enjoy the gift Allah has given us?Let alone pray nawafil and say dhikr each day?
If you were to be asked-Are you ready to die now,are you sure of Paradise?what would you say?Have you done enough last year ,last month,yesterday or even today to deserve eternal peace?Have you thanked ,praised and asked for God's forgiveness today?
For most of us its no.We are too busy during the day except for the daily prayers.We watch Tv for hours ,football makes us postpone prayers,computers have us glued to the internet,phones have us chatting till past prayer times .Yet during this time we could have held the tasbah and said dhikr.We could have prayed.
Think about it. So are you sure of your good deeds?
Are you ready to die now?
