‘Former Governor denied ownership of N270m property,’ EFCC

Ohakim and Abu Sule entered into a tenancy agreement, so as to give the impression that the former Governor had rented the property from Tweeenex Consociate H.D. Limited.

 

He said Ohakim denied ownership of the property under investigation, worth N270m.

Giving evidence, the prosecution witness, Ishaya Dauda, who is a senior detective superintendent with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), said ‘Working on the intelligence reports at our disposal, after the accused person had declared his assets, it was discovered that there was no banking transaction for the purchase of the property.

“We found out that only cash payment was made in respect of the property. So, we took the accused person to the property. When we brought him back to our office, we asked him who owns the property and he said he rented the property through one Abu Sule, Managing Director, Tweeenex Consociate H.D. Limited.’’

Reports say, Ohakim and Abu Sule entered into a tenancy agreement, so as to give the impression that the former Governor had rented the property from Tweeenex Consociate H.D. Limited.
