and NSA thirteen months before the sack of the former Amnesty Boss, is
allegedly intended to defraud taxpayers.

compromising his office.

relationship with the NSA whom he alleged benefits from lucrative
contracts from the Amnesty office.
Gen. Boroh recently forfeited N732.85million to the Federal Government.

in Abuja, who granted the application of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC), seeking the final forfeiture of the funds. The EFCC

believed to be proceeds of unlawful activities.

Justice Tsoho had granted an interim forfeiture order on November 16,
2018, following the ex-parte application filed by the lawyer to the EFCC,
Bar Abbah Mohammed. The judge ordered EFCC to advertise the order in the
newspapers for any interested party to show cause within 14 days on why
the money should not be forfeited to the government.
Following successful prosecution, the judge consequently ordered that the
monies and property be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.
Investigations by the EFCC had uncovered the various sums of N124,000,000;
N320,000,000; N68,768,916; N1,900,000; N5,125,000; N3,000,000;

The ex-parte motion was brought before the court, pursuant to Section 17
of the Advance Fee Fraud and other Related Offences Act 2006, and Section
44(2)(B)(K) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), seeking for an order of
interim forfeiture of the said sum and property.
