$50m Found In Ikoyi: Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue's Lawyers Release Press Statement by obidevine(m): 1:05pm On Apr 13, 2017
In a bid to refute the claims making the rounds that the huge stash of money found in an apartment building in Ikoyi belongs to Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue , her lawyers just released a statement.‎



APRIL 13, 2017

PRESS RELEASE BY THE LAW FIRM OF EMEKA ETIABA SAN, EMEKA ETIABA & CO, ETIABA CHAMBERS

The attention of Our Client, Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue has been drawn to the news making round in the News Media to the effect that the large sums of money to wit: $38,000,000.00 (Thirty-Eight Million Dollars),N23,00
0,000.00 (Twenty-Three Million Naira) and £27,000.00 (Twenty-Seven Thousand Pounds) uncovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes (EFCC) from an apartment in Osborne Towers, Osborne Road, Ikoyi Lagos, Lagos State belong to her.
By this Press Release, we inform the public (especially the News Media) that the said sums of money and/or the apartment where the sums of money were found do not belong to Our Client.
Our Client is as shocked as many other Nigerians at the uncovering and recovery of the said sums of money and wishes to salute the courage and efforts of the EFCC in the war against corruption.
She also wishes to commend the whistle blowing policy introduced by the Federal Government in the fight against corruption which policy has resulted in large scale uncovering and recovery of monies and assets.
It is Our Client’s belief that the source and ownership of the said uncovered sums of money is known or eventually will be known by the EFCC in due course. There is therefore no need for conjecture or speculation.
May we finally implore the News Media to be more circumspect in their publications.

Signed:
Emeka Etiaba SAN, FCArb

...EFCC under this incompetent admin has a knack for rushing to the media without proper investigations,to make noise with the aim to keep gullible and hungry citizens busy while their paymasters APC gropes in dark blindly in terms of governance...

..Therefore i wont be surprised if this is just another wild-goose chase that ends in nothing..no be today.

If the EFCC gets tagged as 'The Boy Who Cried Wolf' it would be even more difficult to secure convictions in court.

[in addition]

silastemplar:
i think it was sahara reporters that linked the money to the woman not the EFCC.

Thanks but EFCC had total control of the 'crime scene'. They got the report, they chose when to go for the 'bust'. SaharaReporters 'source' cannot but be an EFCC operative outside of being the whistleblower him/herself. But then if the source was indeed the whistleblower then they would have gotten confirmed info on the identity of the owner of the apartment.

Meanwhile in all this, who may I ask recorded the bust and then made that video available to the press?

Me?

In summary EFCC provided the details of the bust to SaharaReporters and yes they (SaharaReporters) probably were the ones that 'searched' for a suitable 'owner' of the apartment.

Long story short EFCC leaked details of the bust to the press. This can compromise their prosecution.

That building where the huge sum of money was discovered should have a cctv mounted at the gate so as to know who comes in and go out.Or the security at the gate would know the suspect.Or even the whistleblower.

Can you show me any place or news media publication that claim efcc alleged or confirmed that the money belongs to this woman? You will just be making unfounded allegations against efcc, you will soon be asked to prove your allegation. Always get your facts right, Most Nigerians rely more on hear say or gossip than the authentic information because an average Nigeria will never read or do a small research. Copy and paste generation.

Common sense is a rarity nowadays. So, I don't blame any of you kids on nairaland.

Fyi, EFCC never mentioned or alleged anyone as the owner of the money. It was SR that did.

To children of hate, anger and frustration, everything good about PMB's administration is propaganda. You guys are permanently conditioned that way.

Please, in your haste to shade the APC, don't forget to ask the most important question: who owns the money found?
