Revealed: CCT To Try Ike Ekweremadu For Hidden Assets In UK, US, UAE

The forfeiture is believed to be facilitated by a bilateral agreement reached between Nigeria and the UAE after President Muhammadu Buhari assumed office in 2015.
Sahara Reporters, had earlier reported that Nigeria requested for information on Ekweremadu’s assets relying on the Automatic Exchange of Information(AEoI), a multi-jurisdictional instrument for exposing hidden assets and incomes, to which Nigeria is a signatory.
According to them, a total of 13 properties including two in the United Kingdom and another three in the United States were traced to Ekweremadu.

Ekweremadu, a long serving senator since 2013, if found guilty, could lose his position and could also be banned from holding public office for up to 10 years.
Naija News also earlier reported that the Senate President Bukola Saraki’s case before the Code of Conduct Tribunal has been postponed indefinitely.
