EFCC raids Dubai firm’s office in Abuja over $200b scam

26 May 2016, 17:04

Abuja - Operatives of the the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed the office of a Dubai property firm, The First Group Company,  in Abuja over the ongoing probe of the laundering of over $200billion loot in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by former political office holders, Nation reports.

The company is also being investigated for allegedly defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians by luring them to invest in real estate in Dubai.

A prominent Nigerian lost about $402 000 (N136.6m) in a phony real estate transaction with the company, it was learnt.

Two officials of the company were arrested and were undergoing interrogation at the anti-graft agency’s office last night.

News24 on Monday reported that the Ikeja Magistrate Court on Monday granted the Economic and Financial Commission's request to further remand former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode in its custody for another 3 weeks.

The EFCC had earlier held Fani Kayode in Abuja for 14 days pursuant to a warrant granted by an Abuja magisterial court.

Trial judge, B. O Osunsanmi in her ruling on the EFCC's application held that the defence counsel failed to attach evidence of a pending fundamental human rights suits before her court.
