EFCC quizzes Kwara official, others over property fraud

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ilorin Zonal Office, has arrested the Executive Director of the Kwara State Harmony Holdings, Adebayo  Sanni, over his alleged role in fraudulent sale of some landed properties belonging to the Kwara State Government.

Also, some prominent politicians who served in the administration of the immediate past governor in the state, Alhaji Abdulfattah Ahmed, and a naval officer who was a classmate of the governor were being quizzed by the anti graft agency over alleged illegal acquisition and conversion of the state government land to their personal use.

The landed property, according to the EFCC, is located at Harmony Reserved Area of Ilorin and Galadima area of Abuja.

A statement signed by Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC head of Media and Publicity, said Sanni was quizzed over an alleged conversion of some landed property belonging to the Kwara State government to his personal use.

Those who benefited from the controversial land, according to the EFCC, include a naval officer, Commodore J.A.Taiwo (retd.), a close friend of the immediate past governor and a former Chairman of PDP and later the APC in the state, Alhaji Ishola Balogun-Fulani.

The statement said, “The retired Navy General was allegedly allocated three plots of land in Harmony Reserved Area Estate in Ilorin and five plots of land in Galadima area of Abuja without paying  a  dime to the government.”

As of the time of filing this report, it was gathered that the former Kwara State Government officials were still being grilled by the EFCC operatives in their office in Ilorin.
