The customs comptroller-general, Hameed Ali who disclosed this during a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, said that the cash was intercepted in a car while it was about to be loaded into an aircraft.
He did not provide details of the aircraft but added that the money was stashed inside a vehicle belonging to the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO).
Mr Ali said a suspect, the driver of the vehicle and a staff of NAHCO, has been arrested in connection with the alleged money laundering.
The Custom boss said the money was wrapped in large brown envelopes with the names of would-be owners.
“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.
