A Deputy Commandant with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ms Adenike Ishola, has allegedly fled following the uncovering of her 60-building estate by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
A statement by ICPC spokesperson Mrs Rasheedat A. Okoduwa said the suspect was on trial before a High Court, but she allegedly jumped bail when the anti-graft agency got a court order to seize a 60-building estate in Abuja linked to her.
A statement posted on the commission’s website announced that it had secured an interim forfeiture order on two assets located at Sabon Lugbe, Abuja.
It reads: “Following a motion of ex parte filed by counsel for the ICPC, John Okwor, Justice Okon-Abang of the Federal High Court 6, sitting in Abuja granted the order against the assets linked to an erstwhile staff of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ms Adenike Ishola, and her company, Faith Winners Properties Nigeria Ltd.
“The properties include an estate of 60 buildings at Plot No. MF1296 (10.9ha), Sabon Lugbe South-West Extension (Goza Airport Road), Abuja, and a property at Plot No.ED1295 (9.6ha), located at Sabon Lugbe South-West Extension (Goza Airport Road), Abuja.
“Ishola, a Deputy Commandant, and her company are standing trial before the Federal Capital Territory High Court in charge No FCT/HC/CR/101/2013 for using her company to hoodwink unsuspecting members of the public into subscribing for allocation in a proposed housing estate while passing off the said estate project as collaboration with her employer.
“In the course of the trial, Ishola jumped bail, and available information indicates that she is out of the country.”
