The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited a former Governor and some others for questioning over the $43million discovered in one of the apartments in Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.
According to The Nation, the anti-graft agency has identified how apartment 7B where the money was found, was acquired.
The EFCC has also begun investigation into the roles played by some apartment owners and tenants as it concerned movement of the cash into the Towers.
A source said: “The more we investigate this $43.4m haul, the more we get fresh facts. It has become imperative to interact with some owners or tenants of apartments in the Towers.
“We have invited a former governor and other high-profile owners and tenants for interaction. It is just to ask a few questions on whether or not they were aware of such movement of cash.
“We have clues linking some occupants of the Towers to the cash haul. And in line with sections 16 and 17 of the EFCC (Establishment Act) 2004, we are inviting these landlords or tenants.
“Unless we get to the root of this case, Nigerians may not know the truth or otherwise about the cash.
“We are not saying that those invited are guilty of any infraction or having link with the $43.4million but we need to hear from them – in line with the ongoing profiling of those in the Towers.”
