According to the EFCC who dragged Saraki before the court. the properties located at Plots 10 and11 Abdulkadir Road GRA Ilorin, Kwara, are proceeds from Saraki’s illegal activities while he was governor of the state between 2003 and 2011.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), represented by its counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, told the court that it uncovered monumental fraud perpetrated in the treasury of the Kwara State Government when Saraki was governor.
Justice Rilwan Aikawa while giving the order for the temporary forfeiture, cited section 17 of the advance fee fraud and other related offences act 14, 2006 and section 44(2)B of the 1999 Constitution.
