Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos zone has once again seized more than $43m from a flat in Nigeria’s main city, Lagos.

Officials of the anti-corruption agency raided the flat after a tip-off about a “haggard-looking” woman in “dirty clothes” taking bags in and out of it.

The EFCC personnel said that no-one lived in the flat, but a source reported that a “woman usually appeared on different occasions with Ghana Must Go bags.”

“She comes looking haggard, with dirty clothes but her skin didn’t quite match her outward appearance, perhaps a disguise,” it quoted a source as saying.

The money found in the flat is believed to be from illegal activities.

This is not the first raid with uncovered bundles of cash in Nigeria this year.
