Ex-NNPC boss, Andrew Yakubu asks court to return seized looted $9.7m, £74,000 to him


The former GMD of NNPC, Andrew Yakubu has filed an appeal at the Federal High Court, Kano demanding the refund of the $9.7m and £74,000 seized from him by the EFCC, and which the court that sat in Kano had ruled that it be forfeited to the FG. Yakubu has long said the money were gifts from persons he did not mention.

In the appeal filed by his counsel, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), Yakubu challenged the ruling of the Federal High Court presided over by Justice Zainab B. Abubakar, saying the court lacked the territorial jurisdiction to try the case since the crime was allegedly committed in Abuja, which is outside the territorial jurisdiction of the Kano court.
