The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Thursday handed over a 13-bedroom, one-storey building and a basement, forfeited by the late Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, to the management of North-East Development Commission in Abuja.
The property was forfeited on the order of the court, following prosecution of the late Badeh for money laundering and corruption by the EFCC.
The mansion located on 6 Ogun River Street, Maitama, Abuja, was handed over to NEDC management by the EFCC Director of Operations, Muhammed Umar, who represented the acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu.
The EFCC had last month donated a building in Wuse, Abuja, seized from the late former CDS to the Voice of Nigeria as its corporate headquarters.
Magu congratulated NEDC staff and management over the structure, urging them to maximize the usage for the benefit of the NEDC and the country.
The NEDC Chairman, Maj. Gen. Paul Tarfa, (retd.), promised to cooperate with the EFCC and the Federal Government in the fight against corruption.
