The Management of Trademore International Holding Limited has given the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) a 48hour ultimatum to unseal its property, which was ‘wrongly’ seized.

In a statement issued on Thursday and signed by its legal representative, Nwoke Kalu, the company accused the EFCC of lacking due diligence in their operation that led to the sealing of its estates that include Luxury Apartments, Millennium Apartments, and Ogwumabiri Event center located along Bank Road and Finbars Road, Umuahia, Abia state.

The company in its demand called on the EFCC to immediately remove the notice of seizure placed on all its estates.

According to the statement, the Trademore estates are owned by a private businessman and have been wrongly marked as properties of a PDP chieftain under the agency’s investigation.
