*Seizing them is not even the problem but my question is what will the govt do with the properties?...What about the cash taken from her?

Justice Abdulaziz Anka made the permanent forfeiture order in favour of the Federal Government.
Justice Anka, who made the order, had directed the EFCC to publish it in a national daily to give anyone interested in the properties, the opportunity to come before him to show cause why the properties should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.
The anti-graft agency had on August 22, 2017 obtained an interim order forfeiting the properties temporarily.
The Diezani’s houses, located in Lagos and Port Harcourt, were said to have been acquired by the ex-minister between 2011 and 2013 using front companies.
The EFCC claimed that Diezani paid $21,982,224 for the properties, adding that it believed that the funds were proceeds of crime.
The judge made the order pursuant to an application filed before him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
