Produce Abacha’s seized properties, Reps tell FG

Story from Matthew ELOYI

The House of Representatives on Monday ordered the Presidential Implementation Committee (PIC) on landed properties to produce reports of all assets seized from former Nigerian leaders, especially that of late military dictator, Sanni Abacha.

Chairman of the ad-hoc committee on abandoned properties, Ademorin Kuye, said the House wanted a report on all assets seized from former leaders in and out of Nigeria, particularly that of Mr Abacha recovered by the federal government.

Mr Kuye gave this order when the executive secretary of PIC appeared at the committee in Abuja.

Responding to Mr Kuye’s submissions, the Executive Secretary, PIC, Bala Samid, said some people occupying government quarters had refused to vacate them, adding that as soon as the occupants were approached for payment or to vacate the houses, they went to court to obtain injunctions restraining the PIC.

He said PIC was happy when the ad-hoc committee came on board, stressing that it hoped to get its support to get debtors to pay.
