According to reports, St. Solomon Hospital, which Amosu forfeited to the Federal Government, is worth $2.15million.

Speaking on the issue, the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran said the gesture will boost the country’s health sector.

Adeniran said “Seeing that the EFCC had decided to tread this path gives us hope of winning the war against corruption to achieve positive impacts on the people. It has always been our position at CACOL that whatever money/property recovered from looters should be re-channeled back to the original project the looted funds/property were meant for. If funds meant for a particular project that gets diverted, once such fund is recovered by any anti-corruption agency, such monies should be used to fund the project that was made un-actualizeable as a result of looting.

“One major aftermath of corruption in the country is an epileptic economy. Once the funds allocated to a project get been pillaged, fresh funds are often released for such abandoned project. This has consistently over time landed us in the pitfalls of economic disasters.”

The hospital reportedly has a lot of expensive equipment including a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machine which costs well over $1m.

A source revealed that the EFCC decided to hand over the hospital to the Nigerian Air Force medical unit for proper management.
