The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have apprehended, for alleged money laundering, one Mr. Sani Abdullahi, at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport.

The EFCC arrested Sani during the screening of passengers boarding the China bound Ethiopian Air from Kano, for failing to fully declare the sum of 207,000 dollars (N63,135,000) in his possession.

This development is contained in a statement by EFCC spokesperson, Mr Tony Orilade, in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to the statement, Abdullahi declared the sum of 86,000 dollars (N26,230, 000) but concealed the sum of 121,000 dollars (N36,905,000).

According to the spokesperson, the concealed cash was discovered by the operatives of the suspects after a thorough search was carried out on the suspect.

Orilade, however, said the suspect had been granted administrative bail and would soon be charged to court.
