Some of the properties are located in the highbrow areas of Abuja, Kaduna, Zamfara and Maryland in the United States of America.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu gave the order following an ex-parte motion moved by counsel for the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Osuobeni Akponimisingha.

He said that the court was empowered to grant the application going by the relevant sections of the law and the money laundering act.

According to the judge, granting the application will not deny anyone a fair hearing.

Also, he directed that this should be published in the Nation and Daily Trust Newspapers and that the interested party should file an application to show cause why the property should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Thereafter, he adjourned the matter until April 28 to hear the motion for final forfeiture.
