Nigerian Customs Intercepts Over $8 Million At Murtala Mohammed Airport

The Nigeria Customs Service Murtala Mohammed Airport command has intercepted a sum of $8,065,615 from a driver, before it could be boarded on a flight.

The money which was wrapped in big brown envelopes were stashed in a vehicle belonging to the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO).

Hameed Ali, the customs comptroller-general, said at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, said that the cash was intercepted in a car while it was about to be loaded into an aircraft.

The driver of the vehicle and a staff of NAHCO have been apprehended in connection with the alleged money laundering.

Mr Ali also noted that since the day the money was seized, no bank has come forward to claim it.

Investigations are currently ongoing to discover the owner(s) of the money.

  1. Once stolen money is seized, it becomes ownerless.

    1. Naso nah.

      Money that could have been used for the development of our nation.

    2. Now to be used for development of very very few pockets of dem dem. I laff in swahili

  2. What investigation?
    Is every luggage not tagged before boarding?
    That's how the Ikoyi 50 million dollars is being investigated till date.

  3. Ori mi, when will i come across this kind money.?

  4. Does the car not have owner? Is the driver not attached to someone. They know where to look but feign ignorance- Rubbish

    1. Dont mind them. When it comes to money they will play mumu as if they don't know the right investigation to carry out.

  5. Nobody is coming forward to claim it, the next thing is for our leaders to share it amongst themselves

  6. They got a tip off. Someone who knew of the run was feeling some ways and let the cat out the bag. Can you imagine what went on in the days before x-ray machines and heightened security everywhere? I can only imagine.
