The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has sealed off buildings allegedly owned by the embattled former National Security Adviser (NSA) Colonel Sambo Dasuki in Kaduna State.
The commission was said to have sealed the property, all located in the Kaduna State capital, in the late hours of Sunday.
Dasuki, who was National Security Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, is being investigated by the EFCC over his alleged misappropriation of about $2.1 billion meant for the procurement of arms during the last administration.
Some of the seized houses belonging to Colonel Dasuki are said to be a hotel complex located on Rabah Road, Malali GRA in Kaduna metropolis and a mansion still under construction on Sani Sami Road, also in Malali GRA.
Construction work has also stopped at the property while the building was marked with the red colour by the anti-graft agency asking people to keep off as they were under investigation.
Channels Television reports that the property of a serving Army General, who was also linked with the arms scandal were also confiscated by the commission in Kaduna.
A mansion still under construction along Ibrahim Biu Street at Ungwar Rimi GRA and a shopping complex on Sultan road both alleged to belong to the serving General and his wife were also sealed by the EFCC.
When Channels Television visited the area, some residents said that they woke up to see the buildings marked by EFCC, but could not explain at what time the operation was carried out by the commission’s officials.
They, however, linked the sealing of the properties to the ongoing trial of the former NSA by the commission.
