Diezani’s seized Mansion to be used As Coronavirus Isolation Centre in Lagos state says EFCC



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, handed over a property forfeited by former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke to the Lagos State Government.

Some months back a picture went viral where some Nigerians on social media voiced out that seized properties especially houses should be concerted into isolation centers. However I am pleased to announce that the EFCC have thus gifted the Lagos state a seized property to use as isolation centre.

The property consisting six flats of three bedrooms and a boys’ quarter was forfeited by Mrs Allison-Madueke  following an order of Lagos State Federal High in 2017.
The statement from EFCC goes as follows
“In addition to our mandate to fight economic and financial crimes, the Commission is committed and ready to render essential services that may be required of it in the fight against COVID-19.

Therefore, Lagos State should not hesitate to call on the Commission anytime the need for such essential service arises,”
 
he said.

In his remarks, the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, thanked the Commission for the gesture, noting that it was a welcome collaboration between the Federal and Lagos State Government.
