Properties worth N1.5bn have been traced to the former former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Domestic Affairs, Waripamowei Dudafa by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
A mansion said to be worth over N300m in the Agungi area of the Lekki-Epe Expressway, allegedly belonging to Dudafa was discovered.
The EFCC also traced a plot of land around the Chevron Estate, off the Lekki-Epe Expressway and a twin duplex within the same area to Dudafa.
Also, a property in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State has also been linked to him.
A source said, “When we are probing a person, we usually investigate his lifestyle and see if he or she is living above his means. Since Dudafa has already been arraigned for money laundering, we decided to launch further investigations into his lifestyle.
“We found a white mansion in the Agungi area of Lagos, very close to Lekki. He has about four exotic cars in the compound. We did not seal it off because people live there. So, we just placed a sticker on the fence to indicate that the property is a subject of investigation.
“Dudafa also has a twin duplex around the Chevron Estate. We did not seal it off because he has rented the property out. However, he has a parcel of land around the place, which we have sealed off.
“We have arraigned Dudafa and if he is found guilty, he will forfeit the properties.”
Dudafa has been under the anti-graft agency’s radar and is being investigated for alleged money laundering.
He was said to have collected N10bn from a former Aide-de-Camp to Jonathan, Col. Ojogbane Adegbe (retd.), allegedly used to bribe PDP delegates at the party’s 2014 presidential primaries.
The anti-graft agency said the former presidential aide returned N900m to the Federal Government.
Dudafa has also been linked to four Skye Bank accounts with a balance of $15m, which has been claimed by former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.
