The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has sealed off more houses in Kano allegedly belonging to Brigadier-General Jafaru Mohammed, the director of Finance and Admin in the Office of the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno.
Since the beginning of the investigations, sources said the NSA had been using his office, making frantic efforts to frustrate the investigations over fears that the multi-billion naira properties may be linked to him.
DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that on Wednesday May 27, soldiers allegedly on the orders of the NSA had threatened to shoot officials of the EFCC that came to mark properties seized from Mr Mohammed at Sun City estate, Lokogoma, Abuja.
Unfazed by the NSA’s pressure to stop the investigation, the operatives of the anti-graft agency on Tuesday arrived at two properties, located at the highbrow Gidado Road, off Ahmadu Bello Way, Kano and marked “Under EFCC Investigation” on the buildings.
The operatives also marked another property owned by the NSA’s proxy at another prime location, Hotoro GRA, Kano.
Sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that the EFCC marked at least a dozen properties linked to the serving military officer in Kano on Monday.
Recall that the EFCC had obtained an interim forfeiture from a Federal High Court in Abuja on March 11, 2021, and proceeded to mark eight properties belonging to the military officer in Abuja.
Justice Folashade Ogunbanjo had in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/007/2021 ordered the interim forfeiture of eight properties linked to Mr Mohammed, who is a trusted aide to the NSA.
Some of the properties in Abuja include: a house at 7 God’s Own Estate, Road 1, Wamba District; a fenced plot at 1 Jubril Aminu Crescent, Katampe Extension; a plot at Kubwa Express Road directly opposite Abuja Model City Gate; a house at Block SD 22, Road 5, Kabusa Garden Estate, Abuja; Plot 15, 21st Crescent, Second Avenue, Gwarinpa; 3 Liverpool Close, Sun City Estate and; 25 Osaka Street, Sun City.
