At the Nigerian Police Barracks Wadata in Makurdi on Tuesday, the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), an organization tasked with preventing the unlawful acquisition of riches in Nigeria, made a significant financial find.
More than 5,000 50kg sacks, each with the emblem of Unity Bank, were used to store the money, which came in various denominations.
The owner was initially detained by anti-corruption agency agents and transferred to their Zonal Office in Makurdi, but was eventually released following a number of inquiries.
The owner of the materials, who asked that his name not be used, responded when he was contacted that he has been in the business of purchasing confiscated funds from the Central Bank of Nigeria and selling them to his clients who use them to produce other finished goods like cartons and egg crates, among other things.
A quick glance at each of the packages reveals that the shredded money, which was in denominations of N1000, N500, N200, and N100, has been grounded and cemented together like boxes after being stored for a considerable amount of time.
