Certainly, these are not the best of times for popular actress, Laide Bakare, as she seems to have been caught in the web of the face-off involving her husband, Alhaji Atanda Orilowo, also known as ATM, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over a multi-billion Naira estate project in Lagos. The fraud mess is over a N2.5b
Her husband had threatened to go to court to put a stop to the intimidation by EFCC and settle all the issues once and for all, but it seems the man was just bragging. He has not been seen and the anti-corruption body say Alhaji Orilowo is on the run. They’ve now been empowered to take over his properties.
For the wife, actress Laide Bakare, things have turned from a happy luxurious life as she dreamed to a crises filled one. It gets worse, EFCC had got an order of court, a forfeiture on the properties of Orilowo. After placing the order on his filling stations, EFCC is now set to shut down the boutique that belongs to Laide Bakare since it is regarded as one of Orilowo’s property.
