The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released photos of the $9.7 million found in the home of former Group Managing Director of NNPC, Andrew Yakubu.
The photos showed recovered vaults found in the Kaduna home of the former NNPC boss.
According to a statement released this afternoon, a special operation conducted by operatives of the anti-graft agency on 3rd February, 2017 on a building belonging to the former NNPC boss in Kaduna, yielded the recovery of a staggering sum of $9,772,800 and another sum of £74,000 cash.
The huge cash was hidden in a fire proof safe. The surprise raid of the facility was sequel to an intelligence report which the commission received about suspected proceeds of crime believed to be hidden in the slums of Sabon Tasha area of Kaduna.
On arrival at the facility, the caretaker of the house, one Bitrus Yakubu, a younger brother to Andrew Yakubu, disclosed that both the house and the safe where the money was found belong to his brother, Andrew Yakubu.
When the safe was opened it was discovered that it contained the sum of $9,772,800 (Nine Million, Seven Hundred and Seventy Two Thousand, Eight Hundred United States Dollars) and another sum of £74,000 (Seventy Four Thousand Pound Sterling).
