Efcc and other government security agencies are not known to drag their feet when they announce the discovery of money in people’s home. They usually tell us the name of the owner of the house that the money was found.
They told us they discovered money in some judges home. They also told us they found money in the home of a former NNPC boss. There was a time they even said they found money in Akwa Ibom state government house.
So why is the Efcc not naming the owner of the Ikoyi house where N13 billion was reportedly found?
Has the Efcc not checked up the owner of the building till date? That would even make it more curious. I mean, it does not take much to know the owner of any building in an area like Ikoyi. A simple visit to the land registry would reveal the owner.
My suspicion is that if at all they truly found any ‘abandoned’ money, then it means that they have found out the owner of the building and have discovered that he is not an opponent of government. He could be someone in the present government. That is why they have decided that he must remain nameless.
Otherwise, I don’t see why it should be difficult for anyone to know that the easiest way to know who owns the money is to find out who owns the house that the money was found.
That they have refused to give the name of the owner of the house this time around makes it so curious.
