The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State has hailed the court judgement which ordered the interim forfeiture of the Ilorin residence of former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The order by Justice Rilwan Aikawa, followed an ex parte application by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seeking an order of interim forfeiture of the property located on number 1, Abdulkadir Street, GRA, Ilorin, Kwara State, on the grounds that it was acquired with proceeds of unlawful activity.
According to a statement issued by the publicity Secretary party, Alh Tajudeen Aro the APC urges the former senate president to stop hiding under the guise of legal technicalities this time and face the law in this matter.
The statement reads “We believe that EFCC has sufficient evidence to show cause why the property should be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.
“This imminently should serve as lessons to crop of political actors of Kwara State in the last 16 years who care more about personal interest than that of the state.”
