The EFCC stated that Mrs. Oke made the cash payment
in tranches of $700,000, $650,000 and $353,700 to a
Bureau de Change company, Sulah Petroleum and Gas
Limited, which later converted the sums into

Country Limited for the purchase of the property.

The EFCC on Friday tendered the receipt issued by Fine
and Country Limited to Chobe Ventures Limited as an
exhibit before the Federal High Court in Lagos, where it
is seeking an order of final forfeiture of the recovered
money to the FG.

In an affidavit filed before the court, a Detective
Inspector with the EFCC, Mohammed Chiroma, stated
that “Chobe Ventures Limited is not into any business
but was merely incorporated to retain proceeds of
suspected unlawful activities of Mrs. Folashade Oke.”

While urging the presiding judge, Justice Muslim
Hassan, to order the permanent forfeiture of the funds
to the FG, Oyedepo argued that the fact that Flat 7B,
Osborne Towers was purchased in a criminal manner,
made the N13bn recovered therein “extremely
suspicious to be proceeds of unlawful acts.”
