The money is termed “suspicious election cash”.
Uyiekepen Giwa-Osague was arrested following an intelligence report on a suspicious transaction by a Bureau De Change (BDC) operator, according to a report by the Nation.
The source said the BDC operator admitted that the suspect, who is Atiku’s lawyer, paid the Naira equivalent of $4 million into his account in exchange for hard currency.
“We invited the suspect for interrogation on Monday and Tuesday. Our detectives have also conducted a search of his home. Some useful documents were retrieved. Investigation is, however, still in progress.”
“Apart from documents relating to posh properties at home and abroad, a copy of the EFCC Investigation Report on Atiku’s relationship with a jailed U.S. lawmaker, Williams Jefferson, was retrieved.’’
