A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the final forfeiture of the sum of N449, 750,000 discovered in an abandoned Shop in Victoria Island, Lagos.

The huge amount of money was discovered last month by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) go’ following a tip off by a whistle blower.

The final forfeiture follows an expiration of an order given by the court for any interested party to provide proof of ownership of the money.

The Judge, Justice Rilawan Aikawa had ordered the EFCC to advertise the order in a national newspaper and gave 14 days for any interested party to appear in court to give reasons why the money should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

An investigator with the EFCC, Moses Awolusi, in the affidavit filed before the judge said that the shop numbered LS64, located at Legico Shopping Plaza, at Victoria Island, Lagos had not been opened for two years.

According to him, the money was found on April 7, 2017 in several “Ghana Must Go” sacks, adding that the EFCC recovered the money after investigating intelligence information received on one Mohammed Tauheed.

Awolusi said Tauheed had earlier been brought to the EFCC office by the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of Legico shopping Plaza, Sulaiman Daba and Ishaq Ayandiran, respectively. (TV360 Nigeria)
