EFCC Invades Abuja Estate Over N2 Billion

Stern looking operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  in commando-style stormed the Winning Clause, City of David Estate on Plot 67, Kafe District, Gwarinpa Extension of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja on Friday evening.

The sudden arrival of the anti-graft agency to the estate led by a senior police officer sent panic across the length and breadth of Gwarinpa.

The Chairman of Winning Clause Estate Residents’ Association, Mike Arowosegbe, said they were on a search-visit and that their mission was not to seal off the estate office.

Recall that  members  of the association had earlier filed a petition accusing the promoter of the estate, Obiageli Okwubanego of collecting about N2 billion from the subscribers without developing the estate.

In the petition to the EFCC, owners of apartments in the estate had requested for proper investigation into the activities of Winning Clause Limited.

In addition, they called for the recovery of the money collected from them allegedly under false pretense.

Arowosegbe, said: “We actually started this estate around 2008, through a developer called Saraha Homes. But somewhere along the line, around 2012, some other persons showed up with Winning Clause that they were now the new owners.

“When we did our search,we discovered that they were given another allocation in March 2011 without revoking the earlier one given to Proform West Africa, which went into alliance with Saraha Homes for marketing of the estate.”
