Senator Misau, a member of the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes made the call when the Acting Chairman, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, led the commission’s leadership before the lawmakers for 2017 budget defence.

Citing the recent raid on a house in a Kaduna slum where ex-GMD of NNPC Mr. Yakubu Andrew hid $9,772,000 and £74,000, said there are many houses in Abuja where ill-gotten money are kept away from prying eyes, adding that not few ‘Andrews’ are in the civil service.

He said, “Go and see unoccupied buildings in Asokoro, Maitama and Wuse 2. For over five years, nobody will be there. And EFCC is not looking at these houses. A lot of transactions are taking place with ill-gotten money to the tune of N2bn or N3bn, and somebody will bring the money in cash to buy a house.

“…Go and check the houses in Maitama, Wuse 2 and Asokoro. How did they get the money? Check the directors, who are still serving; they are all billionaires. I can mention more than 30 directors; they are still serving and they are billionaires.”
