Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Discovers $43m In Lagos Flat

Anti-corruption officials have seized more than $43m (£34m) from a Lagos flat. The raid took place after tip-off about a “haggard-looking” woman in “dirty clothes” taking bags in and out of the flat.

It’s not yet known where the bundle of US currency notes originated from but the general assumption is that it may be from unlawful activity, no arrests have as yet been made. This is the latest in a series of raids which uncovered bundles of cash in Nigeria.

In March, the agency said it had found “crispy” banknotes worth $155,000 (£130,000) at the airport in northern Kaduna city.

Apart from the US bank notes worth $43.4m found in the four-bedroom flat in Lagos’s affluent Ikoyi area, investigators also found nearly £27,800 and some 23m naira ($75,000).

The “neatly arranged” cash was stashed in “sealed wrappers” in wardrobes and cabinets in the seventh-floor flat.




Guards told investigators that no-one lived in the flat, but a source reported that a “woman usually appeared on different occasions with Ghana Must Go bags”, the EFCC said.

“She comes looking haggard, with dirty clothes but her skin didn’t quite match her outward appearance, perhaps a disguise,” it quoted a source as saying.

Nigeria has struggled with corruption and looted funds for decades, but the watchdog unit has been on a lucky streak.

Earlier in the week, the agency discovered around 250 million naira in cash ($817,000) in a Lagos market and a further 448 million naira cash ($1.5 million) at a shopping plaza.
