The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has donated a house formerly owned by Ex Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, to the Lagos State government to be used as isolation centre for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

The property comprising six flats of three bedrooms and a boys’ quarter was forfeited by the former minister, following an order from Lagos State Federal High Court in 2017.

At the handover ceremony, the Lagos Zonal Head of the EFCC, Mohammed Rabo said that the gesture was part of the enforcement agencies’ social responsibility efforts towards the fight against the spread of Covid19.

He said, “In addition to our mandate to fight economic and financial crimes, the Commission is committed and ready to render essential services that may be required of it in the fight against COVID-19. Therefore, Lagos State should not hesitate to call on the Commission anytime the need for such an essential service arises”.

In response to this, the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, commended the Commission for the gesture and generosity, noting that it was a welcome collaboration between the Federal and Lagos State Government.
