Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday, found $38
million, £27,000 and N23 million in a private
residence on Gerrard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos. The Recovered Money The commision acted on a tip-off by yet another
whistleblower. It was learned that the house, which belongs to an
unnamed Abuja politician, is on Gerrard Road,
Ikoyi, Lagos. EFCC agents, who stormed the house, early
yesterday, were still counting the money at press
time. EFCC spokesman in Lagos, Mr Samin Amaddin,
who confirmed the discovery, said the agents,
who went on the mission, were yet to return to
base last night. The Federal Government recently spelt out the
benefits awaiting whistleblowers as it also pledged
to protect them. Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai
Mohammed, said any whistleblower whose
information led to the recovery of up to N1 billion
would receive five per cent of the amount.
