Brigadier-General Mohammed Jafaru, the director of Finance in the office of the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, is facing investigations over questionable ownership of multi-billion naira properties.

In the course of over one-year-long investigation, arrests of accomplices and execution of search warrants, the commission made startling discoveries of assets linked to the general.

DAILY NIGERIAN reliably gathered that ownership of an oil depot, several filling stations, shopping plazas, mansions, plots in choice areas, among other assets in key cities were linked to Mr Jafaru.

Investigations showed that he allegedly acquired the properties within the last five years.

Sources familiar with the case told DAILY NIGERIAN that the general’s children own 90 percent of shares of Atlasfield Group of Companies and its subsidiaries, which include Gee-Links Beverages & Industries Ltd and other companies belonging to him and his family.

The general, according to the findings, also jointly owns Gajere Multiple Links Nigeria Limited with his three children Khalid Mohammed, Anas Mohammed and Sani Mohammed.

Sources said at least 17 official accounts are linked to Mr Jafaru’s Bank Verification Number, BVN.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has obtained an interim forfeiture order in respect of at least eight properties linked to the military officer.

Granting an ex parte application for interim forfeiture of the assets and property by the EFCC made on March 9, Justice Folashade Ogunbanjo ordered the publication of the interim forfeiture of the assets and invited people “who may have interest in the assets and properties listed in the schedule to show cause, within 14 days of such publication, why a final order of forfeiture to the Federal Government of Nigeria of the said assets and properties should not be made.”
