Alleged and unconfirmed report reaching Post-Nigeria, from an anonymous source, indicates that President Muhammadu Buhari, is set to order for the immediate arrest and prosecution of Human Rights Activist, Femi Falana, for “illegally acquiring a N1 billion Maitama Home.”
According to the unconfirmed report, Falana’s acquisition of the N1 billion property, was aided and abetted by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
According to available documents, (not yet verified by Post-Nigeria), Femi Falana in the space of 6 months, purchased a building with address, 42 Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja, for the whopping sum of N1 billion, from Aliyu Abubakar, popularly known as AA Oil.
This allegation came barely a few weeks, after the social media was agog with the report that Femi Falana was one of the beneficiaries of proceeds of corruption, recovered under the current embattled Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu.
Although, Femi Falana and the leadership of the EFCC, had since denied the allegation that the Human Rights Activist is a beneficiary of the proceeds of corruption.The report highlighted how Femi Falana is given the right to buy properties seized and recovered by the EFCC, from corrupt Politicians.

Reacting, the anonymous source claimed that after the shocking revelation of Femi Falana’s alleged unholy romance with the EFCC, the widely respected Lawyer has not been seen as usual, granting Press interviews.
In the source’s message to Post-Nigeria, he alleged that: There have been concerns in the Presidency, on how Falana who is not known to have any high profile company as client, can make over a billion Naira in 6 months, to pay cash for a property.
“Reports available, indicates this exposure of unholy alliance between Femi Falana, EFCC, and a certain South-West God father, is now seriously being investigated by the Presidency, which is why Mr Falana has slowed down from his usual weekly media appearances, and is set to launch a media campaign against the person of Buhari.
“Nigerians demand that President Buhari should probe all recovery without fear of favour, and if indeed Mr Falana is found guilty, he should be prosecuted,” the source concluded.
Post-Nigeria recalled, that Femi Falana was last seen in the media last week, at the Inaugural Occasional Round-table Discourse, organised by the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, in Ikeja, Lagos.
While delivering his speech, he had called on the EFCC to wake up from its hibernation, to tackle many more corruption cases piled up across the country.
The Senior Advocate, said the EFCC should treat all corruption petitions before it with all seriousness and fairness, adding that, Nigeria does not need to borrow any loan to finance its budget, if all proceeds of corruption are legally and promptly pursued and recovered by the agency.
All efforts made by our Correspondent to obtain the reaction of Femi Falana concerning the allegation, proved abortive.

Meanwhile, Post-Nigeria has started making covert inquiries to ascertain the actual owner of the controversial mansion located at No 42 Gana Street, Maitama, allegedly belonging to Femi Falana.
