Okoduwa said the assets, located in the Federal Capital Territory, comprised two mansions, 27 pieces of land, one factory building and 15 buildings at Asokoro, Maitama and other districts.

She stated that the assets were linked to 32 corporate entities and that the seizures followed the denial of ownership by the supposed owners.

“The seizure is based on Section 45(4) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act .”
