The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has handed over six flats of three bedrooms each, to the Lagos State government for use as isolation centre.
The property which is located in Lagos State belonged to former minister for petroleum, Diezani Allison-Madueke until it was forfeited to the federal government in 2017 by an order of the federal high court in Lagos.
In a special hand over ceremony, EFCC’s zonal head, Mohammed Rabo, said it was the commission’s contribution to the fight against the spread of COVID-19 in the state. He urged the Lagos State government to reach out to the commission anytime it needed help.
Receiving the building, Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu thanked the EFCC for the gift describing it as “a welcome collaborative effort.”He said the property will be put to good use.
This development comes weeks after the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) asked the federal government to convert forfeited properties for use as isolation centres.
