Ex-Bayelsa Governor, Sylva denies regaining 48 houses seized by EFCC

Former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Timipre Sylva, has objected to a media report purporting his retrieval of 48 houses in Abuja, allegedly, seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
In a statement on Monday in Yenagoa by his media adviser, Mr. Doifie Buokoribo, Sylva described the report as strange, speculative and malicious.
He said neither he nor the courts had at any time confirmed his ownership of such property and wondered where the publishers of the report got their story.
The former governor threatened legal action against publishers of what he called a “wholly speculative and vindictive report.”
