The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday January 24 2013 located a property belonging to former governor of Delta State, James Ibori who is serving a jail term in a United Kingdom prison.
The property situated at No 5, Alpha Beach Road, Lekki, Lagos is suspected to be one of the proceeds of money laundering for which the ex-governor was convicted in the UK.

The attachment of the property is the fall out of continued efforts by the anti- graft agency to trace, find and seize properties that were acquired with stolen funds by the former governor.
The property is a mansion with a mini reception at the ground floor and a detached “Boys Quarters”.
Two occupants of the house, Moses Abu and Kaycee Kasim, were interrogated and made useful statements.
According to some pictures released by the commission, there is a swimming pool located inside the mansion.
Items such as sewing machines, mannequins and other personal effects were recovered from the house.
They were all packed in cartons and sealed by the commission operatives before being moved to its Lagos State office.
