The presiding judge, Justice Nicholas Oweibo, ordered that the items should be temporarily forfeited to the Federal Government following an ex parte application moved today Friday, July 5th by a lawyer for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Rotimi Oyedepo.

The EFCC in its application before the court said that it found and recovered the jewellery and the customised gold iPhone which it believes was acquired with “proceeds of unlawful activities.”
