Following reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) seized 48 houses belonging to former Bayelsa state governor, Timipre Sylva, the former governor has come out to refute the claim stating he doesn’t have 48 properties anywhere in the world. According to him, he had only three properties in Abuja but said he and his wife acquired the three Abuja properties before he became governor further stating that the said houses were declared in his assets declaration form after he became governor. In a statement released through his counsel, Mr Benson Ibezim, Sylva said the anti-graft agency was out to humiliate him just as he advised people not to jump to conclusion based on what they read in the media.
