EFCC records 19 sales Monday as bidding ends



As the sales of forfeited landed properties in Abuja came to a close on Monday, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission recorded 19 successful bids.

As proceeds of crimes determined through legal processes by the EFCC, the properties, spread across the nation, were forfeited to the federal government.

There were new bids for all the unsold properties in lots 4,5,6,7,8, and 9 during Monday’s bidding exercise, the last day for the sales, and 19 successful bidders emerged before the close of sales at around 8:40 pm.

Henry Udeme, one of the winners, praised the EFCC and noted that the exercise was transparent in an interview with newsmen.

“I like the fact that it is transparent, I want the EFCC to extend this transparency to help Nigeria in other areas because so many people are looking up to the Commission.”

In his closing remarks, on Monday night, the Director of Proceeds of Crime Department, EFCC, Yusuf Aliu, who spoke on behalf of the Secretary to the Commission, George Ekpungu, thanked all participants and congratulated the winners.

Aliu said, “I want to appreciate you all for making this exercise a success, I congratulate the winners, and I also want to ask them to cooperate by making payments before the 15 days deadline, otherwise, we will give it to the next highest bidders.

“As for the ones we couldn’t conclude today their sales tonight, we will get back to the public on our decision on them, thank you.”
