During a sting operation on Wednesday, Nigeria’s EFCC discovered cash totalling about N15billion: $38m, N23m and £27,000. The culprit’s name has not been made public. But the haul took place in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Discovery of huge cash by the EFCC has become almost a daily affair.
Ordinary Nigerians have been pouring invectives on the oppressors who have stolen their country blind.
Many Nigerian crooks have been hiding their loot in septic tanks, on the farms, underground and elsewhere, apparently in a bid to avoid the banking system. Through the BVN, investigators can now determine the true identity of an account owner.
