Diezani's Lagos Property Becomes Isolation Centre For COVID - 19 Patients

                  The Property

From Godwin Akomah, Lagos

The massive Lagos property of Mrs Diezani Allison - Madueke,  former Petroleum Resources Minister during the administration of President Goodluck Johnathan, has been turned to an isolation centre for the treatment of Coronavirus patients.

The six flats of three bedrooms apartments, including boys' quarter, was confiscated from the ex - Petroleum Czar by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission(EFCC) following a court order of Lagos State Federal High in 2017, directing the forfeiture of the property by Diezani.

The Anti - graft agency  on Friday, May 15, 2020, handed over  the property to the Lagos State government for use as an isolation centre for COVID-19 patients.

The Lagos Zonal Head of the EFCC, Mohammed Rabo, while handing it over, said that the gesture was part of the Commission’s social responsibility efforts towards the fight against the spread of Corona virus.

“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 essential service arises,” he said.

In his remarks, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu thanked the Commission for the gesture, noting that it was a welcome collaboration between the Federal and Lagos State Government.

While assuring the Commission that the property would be put to good use, the governor thanked the EFCC for paying attention to the efforts of the state government at containing COVID 19, adding that “part of the challenges we have been facing is getting isolation centres for COVID-19 patients. We will go round the facility to see what we can do to improve on it.”
