EFCC Arrests Two Men With $2.8m At Enugu Airport

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday said its operatives had arrested two men with the sum of $2.8m suspected to be laundered funds.

The men, Ighoh Augustine and Ezekwe Emmanuel, allegedly working for a company: Bankers Warehouse, were arrested at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport in Enugu on their way to Lagos.

A statement by the Acting Head, Media and Publicity, Tony Orilade, said the men who are currently being investigated would be charged to court if found culpable of money laundering offences.

“The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Enugu Zonal Office, on Thursday, December 20, 2018, intercepted $2.8million (Two Million, Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars), from two people, suspected to be money launderers, at Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.

“The suspects, namely Ighoh Augustine and Ezekwe Emmanuel, allegedly working for a company: Bankers Warehouse, were nabbed based on intelligence report.

“Upon their arrests, they were caught with consignments of two suitcases, containing $1.4 million each, totalling $2.8 million, at the departure lounge of the airport while about to board an Arik Air evening flight to Lagos”, part of the statement read.

However Orilade stated that the defendants during interrogation, confessed that they had been in the business of conveying cash for “some notable banks”, for over six years and were in the process of doing same for Union Bank Plc, located at New Market, Onitsha, Anambra State, when they were caught.

According to the statement, this is the fourth time the defendants said they had engaged in the act this year.

“They are presently giving useful information to operatives of the Commission, and will be charged to court soon”, he said.

**Would be charged to court if found culpable? If?Isnt transporting s much cash around already a crime?


  1. Someone they didn't "settle" well gave them out. Sorry guy Now u have to share your money with the GUYS. next time you train or night bus.

    1. Night bus ke

    2. EFCC and their mumu. Bankers warehouse is a certified cash in transit company by CBN. Instead of parading them, all they needed to do was to confirm from bankers warehouse if they are their staff. This shows EFCC is as empty as the word empty. Ndi itibolibo!

  2. If its legit cash from a legit source with evidence its not a crime, as long as ure within the country

  3. Why carry such amount to airport? Abi their jazz fail?
    Such amount and u cant hire private jet.

  4. It's possible that they are really doing it for the bank. Banks can move cash in many different ways.

    1. Na lie.
      Without army?

    2. Wetin concern army with cash movement?

  5. If found guilty could means if they don't have a godfather to claim responsibility of the money. Believe me this men would go free by the time a call would be put across to EFCC. They are just front, the main owners will be plotting strategies at the moment.

    1. Mr.ITK try and find out who bankers warehouse are before commenting.

  6. Yeye dey smell ! Bankerwarehouse is legimate cash transit company like travelex and the rest

  7. This is rubbish now, bankers warehouse is authorised to move money for banks both inter and Intra state so why the hullabaloo? If they can prove they are legitimate and confirm the bank they are moving for they will be let go with the money.
