Delta Senator, Nwaoboshi weeps as Court order forfeiture of 14 properties, 22 bank accounts

Senator representing Delta north senatorial district,  Mr. Peter Nwaoboshi is said to be currently weeping if the information at our disposal is anything to go by.

Sources close to the embattled Senator told our correspondents that Mr. Peter Nwaoboshi said that he would settled with a civil society group who petitioned him to EFCC for using his ill-gotten wealth amass to himself to acquire properties across the country.

Nwaoboshi also noted according to the source that he would prefer to use part of the properties seized to make peace with them instead of the losing it to EFCC and further draging his name to ridicule,  noted that Mr. Nwaoboshi was advised to sent for the leadership of the civil society group but ignored their advice, but said the Delta Senator  may be planning sending emissary to the leadership of the civil society group to shelve their swords with a juicy promises.

It would be reccalled the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court has approved an interim forfeiture of Mr. Peter Nwaoboshi‘s properties to the Federal Government.

Recall that the court made an initial order for the confiscation of 14 properties and 22
bank accounts linked to the embattled senator on Tuesday. The bank accounts were traced to Zenith Bank, UBA, Access Bank and Sterling Bank, and they were all joined in the suit, according to the court papers.

The Delta North senator was given 30 days to justify how he acquired the properties and convince the court not to grant a permanent forfeiture of the assets to the Nigerian government.

The order came amidst a deepening probe of Nwaoboshi’s wealth, which federal
authorities argued was ill-gotten and should be forfeited.

The senator was arraigned previously on allegations of false assets filings, but the
tribunal that had powers to hear the case in Abuja threw it out, citing prosecutors’
failure to follow procedures for filing such a case.

Nwaoboshi, who was declared the winner of a second Senate run in February, has also
been locked in a tough battle for the seat with Ned Nwoko, a business lawyer based in Abuja.

The Supreme Court had granted an accelerated hearing in an appeal filed by  Mr.Nwoko, the husband of a nolly wood star, Regina Daniels against the victory of Nwaoboshi at the Court of Appeal, with final judgement expected in the next few days.
