Nigeria customs raid home of Lagos billionaire, seize his Rolls Royce cars

Nigeria Customs Service operatives on Wednesday stormed the home of Sir Olu Okeowo in Ikoyi, Lagos.

 
Okeowo, a real estate billionaire, is popularly known in the state for his taste in luxury cars.
 
It was gathered that Okeowo allegedly failed to pay import duties on some cars in his fleet.
 
Customs officers and men, who were at this expanse residence, seized his Rolls Royce cars.
 
An eye witness told Daily Post that armed operatives arrived the premises early in the day.
 
“I don’t know if he was around, but they took the vehicles away from his mansion inside Parkview Estate”, he said.
 
It is still unclear if the businessman would be prosecuted.
 
Once under the radar of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Okeowo’s air-conditioned garage is reportedly worth around N2billion.
