EFCC Storms Kaduna, Confiscates Properties Belonging to Dasuki, Yishau
…..Arrests Yishau’s Wife

Following some revelations in the ongoing investigation on $2.1bn arms scandal involving the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) silently stormed Kaduna at the weekend confisticating property belonging to the lead suspect (Dasuki) and others.
Investigation shows that one of the property, a mighty residential duplex located at no. 5C, Sultan Close is said to belong to one General Yishau Mahmood Abubakar.
When this reporter visited the property, red paint mark with title: ‘EFCC Keep off, under EFCC investigation’ was written all over the building.
It was also gathered that when the EFCC operatives stormed the house on Sunday evening, there was a birthday party going on, but everyone was asked to vacate the premises immediately.
It was also alleged that the operatives went away with the General’s wife. However, General Abubakar’s whereabout was not known as at the time of filing this report.
Similarly, a shopping mall said be worth hundreds of millions allegedly belonging to the General’s wife was equally confisticated by the anti-graft agency, with the same inscription on it.
People around the property though said it belongs to the General’s brother one Sani and not his wife as alleged.
Similarly, another property, a shopping mall along Sultan Road, which is said to belong to the General’s friend, one Ambassador, (name unknown) was equally confisticated.
Property belonging to the lead suspect, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) were also confisticated. These include an hotel complex located at Rabah Road, Malali GRA and a Housing Estate at Sani Sami Road in the same Malali GRA.
However, residents of the area stormed by the anti-graft agency commended the President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-graft war, calling on him to beam searchlight on other suspects.
The confisticated property looked deserted as people seemed to have obeyed the EFCC’s directive.
