Federal Government Freezes Bank Accounts Of Suspected Looters

After placing travel ban on some persons, the Federal Government has gone ahead to freeze accounts of suspects being tried for corruption.

The federal government has frozen the bank accounts of suspects being tried in court over allegations of corruption by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, TheCable has reported.

Recall that on March 30, The Information and Culture Minister, Lai Mohammed, had released the list of alleged looters.

Subsequently, the federal government placed a travel ban on the affected persons, although the list is yet to be officially made public.

Among those listed were Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser; Dieziani Alison-Madukwe, former minister of petroleum resources; Kenneth Minimah, former chief of army staff; Alex Badeh, former chief of defence staff; Inde Dikko, former comptroller-general of customs; and  Bala Mohammed, former minister of the federal capital territory (FCT).
Others are Stella Oduah, a serving senator; Babangida Aliyu, former Niger State governor; Jonah Jang, former Plateau governor; Nenadi Usman, former minister of finance; Bashir Yuguda, former minister of state for finance; Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation; Raymond Dokpesi, founder of DAAR Communications and Uche Secondus, national chairman of the PDP.

However, speaking with TheCable, one of the affected persons who is a former minister, said: “I issued a cheque of N250,000 to a friend and it was turned down.

“When I called my account officer, he invited me for a meeting, where I was told there is a ‘post no debit’ instruction on all my accounts because of the executive order. They told me I am not the only one affected. All persons undergoing trial are affected.”

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had in October 2018 signed for the implementation of the Executive Order No. 6 on the “preservation of suspicious assets connected with corruption and other relevant offences.”
