According to The Sun, Over N5bn has been traced to the bank account of the first daughter of one of the recently retired Army Generals being investigated by EFCC. .
A top official of EFCC said the discovery was made by a team investigating those indicted in the Third Interim Report of the Presidential Committee on the Audit of Defence Equipment approved by Pres. Buhari, in July.
Those listed for further investigation include two former Chiefs of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. O.A. Ihejirika (Rtd) and Lt.-Gen. K.T.J. Minimah (Rtd); former Minister of State for Foreign Affairs II, Dr Nurudeen Mohammed and 3 former P.S in the Ministry of Defence, Mr. Bukar Goni Aji, Mr. Haruna Sanusi and Mr. E.O, Oyemomi, among others.
Although the General bears Northern muslim names, he is from one of the biggest cities in the Southwest. His unknown Yoruba name is Iyanda. EFCC has placed a lien on the account.
The young lady who is under 30 recently got married. The account officer, a lady who manages the account was subsequently invited by the EFCC. She spilled during interrogation. Her confession led to the invitation of the General’s daughter towards the last week of August.
She pleaded for more time to enable her attend to her infant child. She eventually turned up with her mother, baby, husband and lawyer about two weeks ago. And for two days, she faced interrogation.
Details of the account show that cash deposits of about N10m were consistently paid into the account sometimes 5 or 6 times a day. The money so far deposited into that account and another in London should well be over N5 billion. .
Investigators also discovered that even though the lady was still a student in the U.K, hundreds of thousands of Pound Sterling were wired into the bank account of a London based firm’s bank account for her.
The firm, Carrington Whyte Consulting with Flat 4, Grove End Gardens 33 Grove End Road NW8 9LL London, as its address, was curiously registered around June 2014 and shortly after, the funds began to hit its bank account from Nigeria in torrents.
