As part of its ongoing investigations bordering on inappropriate land deals running into billions of Naira, operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have stormed an Abuja Estate, Winning Clause Limited (WCL).

Some operatives of the anti-graft agency who were on a “search-visit” mission on Friday morning, inspected the vicinity of the estate.

Meanwhile, it was recently speculated that the said estate would be sealed until the EFCC gets to the roots of the matter, but the operatives who spoke briefly with Chairman of the Residents Association of the estate, Mr. Mike Arowosegbe, noted that they just came on a search-visit mission, assuring that the estate would not be sealed.

In April, the Estate’s residents petitioned the EFCC on the allegation that Mrs. Obiageli Okwubanego, Winning Clause Limited promoter, collected over N2 billion from them under false pretense.

The petition was signed by Mike Arowosegbe and Taiwo Adisa, Chairman and General Secretary of the association respectively, and acknowledged by EFCC on February 20, 2017, where the house owners requested for thorough investigation of the activities of the estate’s promoter, Obiageli, and recovery of the money collected from them “under false pretence”.

Shortly after, She was invited to the EFCC custody and interrogated over the unjustly collection of such huge amount of money from house owners in the estate.
