EFCC Seizes Nenadi Usman’s Houses Located In Abuja

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized two houses belonging to Senator Nenadi Usman who was the Director of Finance of the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign Organisation.

It was learnt that the two houses seized were located in Abuja.

The EFCC had arrested Usman last week after it was established that N2.5bn was paid into her company account, Joint Trust Dimensions Limited, and N140m cash was allegedly paid into her Zenith Bank Account with number, 1000158311, domiciled on 7, Kachia Road, Kaduna.

The said transfer, which emanated from the Central Bank of Nigeria, took place in January 2015, during the build up to the presidential election.

Usman had returned N23m to the Federal Government and also promised to return more money.

It was learnt that the suspect revealed that she had two houses in Abuja and the EFCC swiftly sealed off the buildings.

A source at the anti-graft agency said, “She has been cooperating with us as she has returned N23m and we have also seized two houses belonging to her in Abuja.”

The source revealed that Usman complained of health challenges and she might be released on an administrative bail soon.

“Since she has been cooperating with us and has also returned some money, she will be granted an administrative bail. She seems to have some health challenges. Also, releasing her will give her the ability to return more funds,” the source added.
