“Another thing you must know about this drama is that the commission has foiled some attempts to retrieve the money.
“From the time the case was handed over to the commission on July 8, 2015 to date, two people have come forward to claim the money.
“A few days after the money was handed over to the EFCC, a man came to the office to claim the money but when he was grilled, he contradicted himself. In fact, he said he was hired by some persons to claim and retrieve the money from the commission.
“Apart from the man, another woman showed up the following day to claim that she was the one who gave Bamidele the money.
“According to her claim, the money was proceeds of an investment which was liquidated with a bank and was intended to be used to purchase a property for the construction of a cardiac centre.
“However, her claim fell through when operatives confronted her. The bureau de change operator who was caught with the money did not mention her name. Then she realised that she wasn’t going anywhere with her lies, she started pleading for mercy.”
“The case involving the seized $2.1 million is still pending. The man was interrogated on Friday but released to go on what we call administrative bail.
“Since the case is a Lagos case, he is expected to be reporting to the commission’s office in Lagos whenever he is needed.”
