KADUNA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has intercepted five 150kg of sacks, containing the sum of N49 million in Kaduna.
EFCC said the money was intercepted Tuesday during a routing baggage screening by the operatives of its Kaduna zonal office.
It explained in a statement that the five sacks were sighted unattended and without tags ”containing fresh bulk items suspected to be money.”
Acting on a tip off, the agency narrated “Upon examination, the bags were found to contain fresh crispy naira notes of N200 denomination in 20 bundles totaling forty million naira and N50 denomination in 180 bundles totaling nine million naira with seal purportedly emanating from the Nigeria Security and Minting Plc as seen in the labeled sealed packs.”
Meanwhile, EFCC has informed that investigation to unravel the culprits behind the attempted ”illegal movement of the cash” was still ongoing.
Reports say a man believed to be the owner of the money ran away before EFCC operatives could question him.
