The court had on Thursday, April 13 ordered the temporary forfeiture of the $43m, N23m and £27,000 that the EFCC discovered in the Ikoyi apartment.

In ordering the temporary forfeiture of the cash, Justice Muslim Hassan, had given any interested party in the cash until May 5, 2017, to show cause why the money should not be permanently forfeited to the Federal Government.

The EFCC had raided the apartment after a whistle-blower alerted it to the suspicious movement of bags in and out of the apartment. (Channels TV)
