Kwara State High Court Judge , Mahmood Abdulgafar on March 10, 2020 ordered the interim forfeiture of a four-bedroom bungalow belonging to a self-acclaimed herbalist, Jamiu Isiaka, who allegedly defrauded a South Korean, Keun Sig Kim, of about N30million in an oil and gas contract scam.
The property, located at Oke Foma in Ilorin Local Government Area, according to the EFCC, is believed to be part of the proceeds of Isiaka’s fraudulent activities.
Ilorin Zonal Office of the anti-graft commission had on June 10, 2019 arraigned him for impersonating the then Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Makanti Baru; the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and the National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Aminat Zakari amongst others, to defraud the South Korean business man.
However, there was call by the Counsel for the EFCC, Andrew Akoja, the counsel prayed the Court to “appoint a competent person or firm to manage the property”.
Justice Abdulgafar, afterwards, granted the application and ordered for interim forfeiture of the property. The order, the judge added, should be published in a national daily newspaper.
