Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that 42 witnesses are billed to testify in the lawsuit against retired Airforce chiefs led by Air Marshal Adesola Amosu Nunayon, Pulse reports.

The Prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo Isiokuwa made it known that the 42 witnesses will testify against the defendants in the case when the trial begins later in the year.

Amosu alongside Air Vice-Marshal Jacob Bola Adigun and Air Commodore Gbadebo Owodunni Olugbenga, Delfina Oil and Gas Limited, Mcallan Oil And Gas Limited, Hebron Housing and Properties Company Limited, Trapezites BDC, Fonds and Pricey Limited, Deegee Oil and Gas Limited, Timsegg Investment Limited and Solomon Health Care Limited are being charged with defrauding the Nigerian Air Force to the tune of N21billion.

News24 reported that that 29 properties were seized from the three former heads of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) as a result of the EFCC's investigation.

The properties include 3 plazas, 6 mansions, a quarry, a hospital, a block of flats, farms, a school, two hotels, some uncompleted buildings and a few plots of land.

A source at the EFCC has revealed that the properties have been seized temporarily pending the outcome of court proceedings.

The three former Air Force officials were arraigned last week by the EFCC over their alleged involvement in the diversion of funds amounting to N21 billion in 2014.
