The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has named FOLASHADE OKE as the owner of Flat B, No 13, Osbourne Road, Osbourne Towers, Ikoyi Lagos where the sum of 43 million dollars was recently found.
Mrs OKE is the wife of the suspended Director General of the National Intelligence Agency NIA, AYODELE OKE, whose agency had laid claim to the money.
Counsel to the EFCC, ROTIMI OYEDEPO told the court she made cash payment of 1.65 million dollars for the purchase of the flat between August the 25th and September the 3rd, 2015 using the name of a company, Chobe Ventures Limited, to which she and her son, Master AYODELE OKE Junior, were directors.
The EFCC Counsel also argued that the fact that the apartment was purchased in a criminal manner, made the 13 billion naira recovered therein extremely suspicious to be proceeds of unlawful acts.
He asked the judge to order the permanent forfeiture of the funds to the federal government.
Justice HASSAN adjourned till June the 6th 2017 to either suspend action or proceed to give judgment for the final forfeiture of the funds.
