EFCC intercepts N211m gold at Lagos airport

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) recently intercepted gold worth about N211 million being illegally transported through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos to Dubai.

Disclosing this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, EFCC Acting Head, Media and Publicity, Mr Tony Orilade, said: “Following intelligence reports, the operatives on Nov. 9, 2018 uncovered the gold weighing about 35kg just at the point of departure of a suspect currently in the EFCC’s custody.”

“Meanwhile, the suspect is cooperating with operatives.

“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,” Orilade said.
