The Federal High Court in Lagos has changed its request forfeiting Former Senate President’ Bukola Saraki’s houses in Ilorin to the Federal Government.

The judgment was given by Justice Rilwan Aikawa, who gave the houses back to Saraki, while delivering judgment on an application by the EFCC trying to permanently forfeit the houses to the Federal Government.

The EFCC had last year December made sure they got a court order for the forfeiture of Saraki’s two houses in Ilorin, Kwara State in the wake of telling the court that they were gained with continues of unlawful exercises purportedly executed by Saraki while he was Kwara State senator somewhere in the range of 2003 and 2011.

However, endeavors by the EFCC to change over the interim forfeiture request to a lasting one was opposed by Saraki, driving in the end to the release of the brief forfeiture request on Thursday by Justice Aikawa.

The Judge said he found no adequate premise in the EFCC application and he proved unable to “discover my way through” to give the permanent forfeiture request.

In its application, the EFCC had told the court how it got and researched an intelligence report, demonstrating great extortion executed in the treasury of the Kwara State Government somewhere around the time Saraki was Kwara State Governor.

An EFCC officer, Olamide Sadiq, stated, “While the examination was progressing, a few fake exchanges were found especially the monthly allocation from the Federal Government with a combined total of at least N100m which was kept inside the Kwara State Government account. ”

Be that as it may, Saraki had, through his legal advisor, Kehinde Ogunwumiju (SAN), portrayed the EFCC suit as maltreatment of court forms and an endeavor to outrage him.
