SAN FRANCISCO, January 25, (THEWILL) - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Thursday, January 24, 2013 attached a property belonging to former governor of DeltaState, James Ibori who is serving a jail term in a United Kingdom prison.

The property situated at No 5, Alpha Beach Road, Lekki, Lagos, is suspected to be one of the proceeds of money laundering for which the ex-governor was convicted in the UK.

The attachment of the property is the fall out of continued efforts by the anti- graft agency to trace, find and seize properties that were acquired with stolen funds by the former governor.

The property is a mansion with a mini reception at the ground floor and a detached Boys Quarters.

Two occupants of the house, Moses Abu and Kaycee Kasim, were interrogated and made useful statements.
