Justice Chuka Obiozor of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, had last Tuesday ordered the freezing of N9.9bn in four bank accounts linked with an aide to the former governor.

The EFCC said only N300 million remains in the accounts.

The funds are domiciled in First City Monument Bank (FCMB) account number 5617984012; Access Bank account number 0060949275 and Zenith Bank account number 1011691254, respectively.

Obiozor had given the order, following an ex-parte application filed by the EFCC.

The EFCC had prayed the court to freeze the account pending the conclusion of the investigation.
