The Federal Government is seeking the help of the United Kingdom in order to seize a mansion belonging to former Chief of Air Staff, Adesola Amosu.

The building is located at 50 Tenterden Grove and is valued at over £1 million, according to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The EFCC has also traced a home worth £875,000 to former Chief of Accounts and Budgeting in the Nigerian Air Force, Jacob Adigun, Punch reports.

“We identified a detached house at 93b Shirehall Park, London, NW42QU, belonging to Adigun. The house was bought at the cost of £875,000 (N333,375,000) while we traced another house to 50 Tenterden Grove, NW41TH, belonging to Amosu. The house was bought at over £1m (N381m),” a source told Punch.

“What we are seeking is how to seize the properties through diplomatic means. It is a process known as Mutual Legal Treaty Assistance,” the source added.

Meanwhile, Amosu has reportedly refunded N2.6 billion in looted funds to the government.
