N8bn scam: Court orders EFCC to produce 106 boxes containing stolen money


A Federal High Court in Ibadan, on Friday ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to produce the 106 boxes, containing the N900 million allegedly stolen by two workers of Zenith Bank PLC.
The anti-graft agency had charged Bolade Ajuwan and Samuel Ogbiede alongside six Central Bank officials. Specifically, the apex bank employees were alleged to have compromised the CBN’s briquette exercise, by stealing huge sums of mutilated higher denomination Naira currencies meant to be exchanged for new notes. The other bankers allegedly acted as accomplices to the crime and also helped themselves to a sizeable chunk of the money. When the charges were read to them, they pleaded not guilty.
Justice P.I. Ajoku of the Federal High Court, gave the order after an EFCC witness, Saliu Kadir , testified alongside two CBN officials; Kolawole Babalola and Muniru Olaniran.
