The full list of occupants of a swanky apartment building in Lagos where operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) found close to $50million last week.
The building, located at 16 Osborne Road in Ikoyi, has nine floors of 19 Apartments and two penthouses. It is owned by a former Peoples Democratic Party chairman, Ahmed Muazu, who retained for himself the penthouses, 10A and B; as well as Apartments 11A and 11B.
Since the raid became public, the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) has laid claim to the funds, its Director-General Ayodele Oke saying it was meant for covert operations authorized by President Goodluck Jonathan during his tenure. The woman who was discreetly ferrying the money into the apartment in bags was Mr. Oke’s wife, Folashade.
Other owners include a former Guaranty Trust Bank chairman, Fola Adeola, who owns Apartment 1A, and former Anambra Governor, Peter Obi and his wife, who own Apartment 1B.
