Sources on Wednesday told SaharaReporters that the $50 million uncovered in a residential building located at Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, by EFCC, belongs to the sacked Managing Director, Operations at NNPC, Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue.
Nnamdi-Ogbue, was sacked alongside other three top Managing Directors at the NNPC over the ‘missing’ petrol scandal involving Capital Oil & Gas Nigeria Limited owned by businessman, Ifeanyi Ubah.
SaharaReporters reports that the cook who served Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, absconded with cash and pieces of jewelry worth $6million in 2016.
The cook, Mr. Gabel Segbedji, a national of Benin Republic, took off with the loot in a Toyota Camry car, which also belonged to her boss.
The operation leading to the discovery was followed by a whistle blower's confidential alert received by the anti-graft agency in the early hours of Wednesday.
The breakdown of the money found in the house is $43.4million, £27,800 and N23.2million.
