The Accra High Court has ordered the confiscation of a house located at East Legon, belonging to Nayele Ametefe.
The court, presided over by Mrs Justice Georgina Mensah-Datsa was of the view that per the evidence on record, the said house which became a subject of litigation belonged to Nayele and not her mother.
Nayele’s mother initiated a suit saying the house at East Legon and another located at Pease in the Ashanti Region belonged to her and not her daughter.
The court, however, ruled the state could not prove that the house at Pease belonged to Nayele and therefore did not order its confiscation.
Proceeds from the house will be shared in accordance with section 66 of the EOCO ACT, 2010, (ACT 804).
Per the court order, 50 percent will go to NACOB, 20 percent EOCO, 15 percent Judicial Service and 15 per cent consolidated fund.
The house is said to be valued at $1.6million.
