Mohammed directed that the ruling be published in a national newspaper for any one with interest in the money to show cause why it should not be permanently handed over to the government.

At today's hearing, EFCC counsel, S. H. Sa'ad, said the commission complied, made the publication, and wants the money ceded to FG.

Counsel to the respondents, Shamsu Dauda, did not oppose the application.
