The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday evening handed over a property seized from a former Chief of Defence Staff, the late Air Marshal Alex Badeh to the Voice of Nigeria (VON).

The property is located at Plot 1386 Uda Crescent, off Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse 2 Abuja.

The Acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said with a successful fight against corruption, 70 per cent of Nigeria’s problems would have been solved.

A statement by the Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Tony Orilade, said: “The edifice is one of the properties seized from and finally forfeited to the federal government by the late Chief of Air Staff, Alex Badeh.

“According to the Acting Chairman of the commission, Magu, who was represented at the occasion by the Secretary to the Commission, Barrister Ola Olukoyede, the hand over is a testament that the fight against corruption is real.

“If we are able to fight corruption in Nigeria concertedly, we would have fought 70% of Nigeria’s problem.”

The Chairman of the Board of VON, Ibrahim Buba and DG, VON, Osita Okechukwu, led other management staff of VON at the handover ceremony.
