As part of investigations into the 13 billion Naira discovery at a flat in Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos state, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has searched apartments of the immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi; and a former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Mu’azu.
Other prominent persons, living in the building, include a former Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mrs Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, and C.E.O of Ebony Life Television, Mo’ Abudu.
The media aide to Mr Obi, Mr Valentine Obienyem, confirmed this in a statement on Tuesday, noting that all the apartments in the building were searched by the commission, as detectives were, however of the opinion that there might be more money concealed in other flats including the three unoccupied apartments.
He said, “Although the former governor was not at home when the EFCC carried out the search, but the key to the flat was sent via courier to the EFCC and nothing incriminating was found in the apartment”
Sources within the EFCC also confirmed that all the flats were searched including the unoccupied ones.
The anti-graft agency had on Wednesday last week raided the apartment, where it recovered huge sums of money in Dollars, Pounds and in Naira. (43 million Dollars, 23 million Naira and another 27,000 Pounds) following the Federal Government’s Whistle-blowing Policy.
