The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Kaduna zonal office, on Tuesday, intercepted a sum of N49million in five large black 150kg coloured “Buhu” sacks.
The Head of Media and Public Relations, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this on Tuesday, said the operation was as a result of following a tip off.
During a routine baggage screening, Uwujaren said, sacks were sighted unattended and without tags containing fresh bulk items suspected to be money.
“Upon examination, the bags were found to contain fresh crispy naira notes of N200 denomination in 20 bundles totaling forty million naira and N50 denomination in 180 bundles totaling nine million naira with seal purportedly emanating from the Nigeria Security and Minting Plc (NSPM) as seen in the labeled sealed packs,” he stated.
He said that investigation into the case is in top gear to unravel the culprits behind the attempted illegal movement of the cash.
