Reports say the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has seized some houses belonging to Senate President Bukola Saraki.

The houses, which are located at 15a, 15b and 17 MacDonald Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, are said to belong to Saraki.

However, the EFCC was said to be unsure of which of the properties that actually belong to the Senate President and decided to place inscriptions and stickers on all of them.

While 15a and 15b were declared by Saraki in his asset declaration form, it is believed that some other houses on the street were bought by the Senate President from the Presidential Implementation Committee for the Sales of Government Property through shell companies.

His relative, who did not want to be named, told our correspondent that the houses were seized on Friday.

The EFCC last week announced a probe into the activities of the Senate President dating back to 2003 when he became the governor of Kwara State.

But Saraki through his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu said he had been tried, discharged and acquitted as the properties were the subject of his arraignment before the CCT by the Federal Government.
