The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, on Friday, ordered an interim forfeiture of 40 landed property linked to Senator Ike Ekweremadu, former Deputy Senate President.

Justice Inyang Ekwo following an ex-parte motion filed and moved by Ibrahim Buba, lawyer to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mr Ekweremadu and his wife, Beatrice, are currently in custody in the United Kingdom (UK), over allegations bordering on organ trafficking of David Ukpo, who is said to be a minor.

Mr Ekwo, who granted the motion, ordered the anti-graft agency to publish the interim forfeiture order of the property in a national daily within seven days.

The judge directed anybody who had interest in the forfeited property to indicate within 14 days of  the publication of the interim forfeiture order on why the property should not be permanently forfeited to the federal government.

Mr Ekwo then adjourned the matter until December 5 for a report.

The affected property include 10 properties in Enugu, three in the United States of America, two in the UK, one in Lagos, nine in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate and 15 located in the Federal Capital Territory.
