Whistleblower Narrates What Transpired In The Lagos Apartment Where EFCC Seized by papparatzzi2013: 7:01pm On Apr 17, 2017
While Ayodele Oke, the Director-General of the Nigerian Intelligence Agency (NIA) has claimed that the $43 million, N23.2 million and £27,800 (N13billion) cash found in an apartment in Lagos last week belongs to his agency, information available to SaharaReporters suggests that the woman seen hauling the money into the apartment in Ghana-Must-Go bags may have been Folashade Oke, his wife.

Our investigation has revealed that the owners of Apartment 7B gave Folashade Oke, with phone number +2348059833410, as their contact. Sources at the NIA confirmed Folashade to be the spouse of their Director-General, Mr. Oke.

The day after the money was discovered, Mr. Oke had told SaharaReporters he could not verify any information about the money as he had not read any report linking his agency to the cash.

After pledging to speak to us thereafter, he did not take any calls until he suddenly announced that the money belonged to NIA, and that it had been approved by President Goodluck Jonathan for certain “covert” activities.

One of the whistleblowers responsible for the discovery told our correspondent that since he started working on the property as a guard, a woman who spoke fluent Yoruba repeatedly brought huge bags of money to Apartment 7B. That particular property was known to guards as Apartment “Dash-Dash” because in the records there were two dashes where the name of the owner ought to be.

He recalled that on two occasions, he helped the woman, who was always curiously dressed in a haggardly way, to carry the money to “Dash-Dash”. The woman, on the first occasion, gave him N10,000 as a gift, and on the second, N500.

He said the woman would spend about two hours in the apartment, then go freshen up in the gym at the back of the building before leaving.

While Mrs. Oke appears to be that person, who was quietly trying to traffic the money to the apartment for some reason, a quick check on True Caller shows phone number +2348059833410 to be customized as “Okemob Niger”.

According to the whistleblower, who is in hiding for fear of his life, there are about 19 fully occupied apartments and 2 penthouses at the 16 Osborne Road, Ikoyi, property. Estate valuers estimate each of the apartment with four bedrooms and state of the art facilities to cost about N250 million.

The building is owned by a former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ahmed Muazu, who is currently in Singapore, according to persons knowledgeable about his movement. Mr. Muazu, after initially denying ownership of the building, has now owned up.

The whistleblower said Mr. Muazu has many prominent Nigerians as apartment owners in the building. They include wealthy former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, who owns one on the first floor; recently-retired Managing-Director of the NNPC, Esther Ogbue, on the second; and TV personality and owner of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu, on the 4th.

He further told our correspondent that Patricia, a daughter of former PDP “Mr. Fix-It” Chief Anthony Anenih, lives in Apartment 7A. That is next door to 7B, which is now claimed by the NIA as belonging to it although only one woman, the wife of its Director-General, was ever seen in the premises in a home-decorating mission to furnish the apartment with up to N13 billion in raw cash.

Further investigations show that both Apartment 7A and 7B were initially owned by former Ms. Anenih and her husband Edo-Osagie, who used a company known as Bishop Hills Enterprises Ltd to buy them from the former PDP chairman. It is unclear at what point they parted with 7B.

SaharaReporters made efforts to contact Mrs. Edo-Osagie but a family source said she could not comment as her mother, Patricia Anenih, has just died. Mrs. Anenih, who had been sick for some time, died yesterday according to family sources.

Asked by SaharaReporters if there are CCTV cameras in the building, the whistleblower said there were none when he was a guard there. This is curious, considering the caliber of Nigerians who live in the building. However, a resident at the building said there are hidden CCTV cameras installed by Siemens but they are not known to the regular guards

The whistleblower also said there were no guards or security agents operating from within Apartment “Dash-Dash.” He maintained that apart from the woman who brought bags into the apartment, there were no occupants or operatives living or working there.

The whistleblower’s account somehow tallies with the denial of the Central Bank of Nigeria earlier today that it ever sent bullion vans to take money to the apartment, as claimed by Mr. Oke.

Meanwhile, the EFCC operatives who raided the building have stated that in addition to the vast sums of money they found in various currencies, they also retrieved 2015 posters and presidential campaign paraphernalia belonging to former President Goodluck Jonathan and his then Vice President, Named Sambo at the scene.

An EFCC source also told SaharaReporters that the reason they went ahead and raided the apartment was because the EFCC has in the past year investigated several NIA operatives involved in corruption, finding widespread malfeasance within the agency, with several NIA operatives owning hotels, apartment buildings and luxury cars in Abuja and elsewhere.

That background may have emboldened the EFCC chairman to ignore pleas by Mr. Oke when he arrived suddenly at the EFCC offices asking them to call off the raid after they had already commenced.

The question now is: how did Mrs. Oke become involved in discreetly and personally ferrying money supposedly belonging to the federal government into a private apartment she appears to own, and apparently trying to hide it there?

Meanwhile, the whistleblowers have also said they are certain that at least two other apartments in the building, which is now being watched, may also contain large sums of money. But they did not confirm if they passed any details of this information to the EFCC.

Yet another story from saharareporters, seems APC don't know how to twist this story.

From Mu'azu to Esther Ogbue to Aneni's daughter they keep changing the narrative.

Meanwhile the actual owner Lootimi Amaechi is laughing at everybody.

I am quite certain that the money is part of what was budgeted by PDP to capture Lagos and south west at all cost in the last election. Oke divided the money and decided to launder some.
Linking Amechi to the money is wickedness.

WHo kept this Ogbanje money in that flat?

Who owns the flat?

WHy is NIA keeping National Asset in private home?

Is the building an asset of NIA or Federal Republic of Nigeria?

How come the money was discovered on Wednesday and Jonathan's Ex-CSO died of Heart Attack the following day?

Still looking for links to Amaechi.

PDP stylishly putting plenty versions of falsehood so the whole thing will look confusing.

They sold stage management for efcc boss to look good, later it is Amaechi's money.

Thanks to the useless Govt at the centre who can not give an official position of events but allow the poor masses rely on influenced media for information.

when I showed evidence of the above, some scumbags said it's a lie. Their hero is indeed a thief.

Watch the video at 7:55 - 7:57, this probably point to the re why Wike, Fayose and FFK quickly rush to the media to counter accuse Amaechi before the secret is revealed.

Obviously and as previously exposed with DasukiGate, GEJ and his gang of thieves used many of our institutions to steal and divert funds. The NIA was used to loot and I honestly believe this is nothing new, it's been going on before GEJ and still going on after GEJ.

The dollars GEJ was sharing all over the country back in 2015 came from somewhere including the 2.5 billion NSA funds that went to the likes of Foyose, Obanikoro, Metuh, FFK and so on.

Even with his good intentions, PMB, his administration and crime fighting agencies are part of the problem there is lack of transparency. Fighting crime means you have to carry the public along, you have to disclose credible facts and outcomes about your crime fighting efforts.


All roads lead to GEJ.
