The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC ) has seized properties belonging to Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.), former National Security Adviser (NSA), in Kaduna last weekend.

Dasuki, NSA to former President Goodluck Jonathan, is currently at the centre of a massive investigation into the alleged misappropriation of about $2.1 billion meant for the procurement of arms. A panel, which investigated the way the money was spent, indicted Dasuki and the other suspects.

Major General Abubakar’s residential duplex located at No. 5C, Sultan Close was sealed off on Sunday evening, bearing the “Keep off, under EFCC investigation” red paint mark. It was also gathered that when the EFCC operatives arrived at the house, there was a birthday party going on. Everybody was asked to vacate the premises immediately and they obeyed.

A shopping mall allegedly belonging to the General’s wife was also confiscated by the anti-graft agency still, with the “Keep off, under EFCC investigation” inscription. Although there’s a rumor that the building belonged to the General’s brother, and not his wife.

Another shopping mall on Sultan Road, which is believed to belong to Gen. Abubakar’s friend who is an Ambassador was also impounded.
