EFCC uncovers another €547,730, £21,090, N5.6m cash in Lagos [PHOTO]

 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday night said a tip-off from a whistle blower led operatives to intercept huge sums of money in various currencies at the popular Balogun market in Lagos.

The monies include €547,730 and £21,090, as well as N5,648,500.

The total haul is about N250m at the prevailing exchange rate at the parallel market.

Wilson Uwujaren​, Head ​of ​Media ​and Publicity​, in a statement to DAILY POST, said ​the development followed information that ​huge cash was being moved somewhere in the market for conversion into foreign currencies by unnamed persons.

He added that: ​”​Operatives responded timely, met the money in Bureau de Change office, but a large chunk of it had been converted into Euro and Pounds sterling.

​”​The BDC operators found in possession of the monies claimed they were acting on behalf of their boss who sent the money to them from one of the Northern states in Nigeria.” ‎
