Nigeria: N211 million Worth of Gold Seized at the Airport by the EFCC

Gold worth about N211 million was prevented from being transported out of the country illegally by the EFCC at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos State.

Commenting on the issue, the acting head of EFCC’s Media and Publicity, Mr Tony Orilade, said “following intelligence reports, the operatives on November 9, 2018, uncovered the gold weighing about 35kg just at the point of departure of a suspect currently in the EFCC’s custody.”

According to him, the gold was heading to Dubai when it was intercepted. He noted that the suspect was providing the agency with useful information that will help it get to the bottom of the syndicate behind the operation.

He further added “It will be recalled that the EFCC also in March 2017, intercepted bags containing a total of N49 million cash being illegally transported out of the country through the Kaduna International Airport.”
