This may definitely nut be the best of time for the former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu as a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today ordered an interim forfeiture of 40 landed properties linked to the former Senator.

The affected properties 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 Emirates (UAE), and 15 located in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The forfeiture order followed an ex-parte motion filed and moved by Ibrahim Buba, lawyer to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

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.

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

The judge further directed anybody who had an interest in the forfeited properties to indicate within 14 days of the publication of the interim forfeiture order on why the properties should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

Justice Ekwo, therefore, adjourned the matter until December 5 for a report.
