Customs Seizes $8 Million At Lagos International Airport by Citizenshelm: 1:28pm On Feb 04
The Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA)  Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has intercepted $8,065,615 at the airport, DailyLeakers

A driver working with Nigerian Aviation Handling Company, NAHCO, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport has been arrested by men of Murtala Mohammed International Airport Command over the sum of $8,065,615 loaded into a vehicle he was driving.

Speaking to journalists in Lagos on Tuesday, Mr. Hameed Ali, the customs comptroller-general, said the cash was intercepted while it was about to be loaded into an aircraft from the vehicle.

He did not provide details of the aircraft or the name of the driver who was arrested.

But Ali who said the money was wrapped in large brown envelopes with the names of would-be owners said the Customs would eventually unravel the identity of the owners of the abandoned money.

“From the day we seized this money, no bank has come to claim ownership. But our investigation will reveal the mystery behind the owners,” Alli said.

cool

Nigerian Aviation Handling Company, NAHCO are real criminals, from smugling to money laundering they would even steal from your USPS Parcel and Package

Unless we do something about both NAHCO and Turkish Airline, no positive result would come out of Anti terrorism fight, Anti corruption fight or even border seciurity

Nigeria doesn't have money.

The little we make as a country is oftentimes cornered by a select few, giving the illusion of wealth.
