EFCC ‘uncovers N4bn’ in two accounts, owner on the run
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday said it has uncovered N4bn courtesy of a tip-off by a whistleblower.
The N4 billion found in two bank accounts are suspected to be proceeds of crime, says the anti-graft agency.
The funds are said to belong to a former deputy governorship candidate in Niger state.
The yet-to-be-identified owner reportedly used Katah Property & Investment Limited and Sadiq Air Travel Agency to launder the funds.
Both companies have N2 billion fixed in their respective deposit accounts in Guaranty Trust Bank.
According to the anti-graft agency, the suspected owner of the account and the account officer are currently on the run.
