BankerThe Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, has secured an order of the Federal High Court, Kano for forfeiture of the properties of a banker, one Yagana Ibrahim Bukar a.k.a Aisha Shettima Noor.

By the order, dated October 3, 2014, the properties of the accused person which are believed to be proceeds of crime are to be forfeited to the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The assets include various sums of money stashed in three different bank accounts, a Honda Accord car with registration No. BD 496 NSR, a Toyota Matrix Car with registration No. FGE 122 AE and a Shop with goods situated at Badawa Layout, Kano.

The forfeiture order followed the refusal of the accused who is being prosecuted on two separate criminal charges bordering on money laundering, stealing and obtaining by false pretence, to present herself for trial after she was granted bail upon arraignment.

Banker, Yagana, is alleged to have forged various personal and official documents which she used in withdrawing huge sums of money from an Azman Oil and Gas Limited account domiciled with one of the new generation banks in Kano, while being the Account Officer of the company in 2013.
