The EFCC searched the apartment of prominent Nigerians in Osborne Towers in Ikoyi where $50 million was found in several foreign currencies.
Those whose apartments were searched are ex PDP Chairman Adamu Mu’azu, media mogul Mo Abudu, immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; and a former Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue.
All the flats occupied and unoccupied were searched.
Also, it was said that the case is being handled by the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, and not the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).
A close source said: “The NSA, Babagana Monguno, is the one investigating and not the AGF. By the time he finishes his job, the Presidency may then officially address the issue,”
