Four hundred and forty eight thousand, eight hundred and sixty thousand Naira have yet again been recovered by operatives  of The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

 The money which is suspected to be stolen money was found stashed in several Ghana Must Go bags at LEGICO Shopping Plaza, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, in N500 and N1000 denominations. 

The money was uncovered after a whistle blower tipped operatives of the Commission . They in turn swooped into action, stormed the shopping complex where the money was kept and sought the identity of the owners of two shops, LS 64 and LS 67 which were under locks and keys.

The shops had signages of Bureau de Change, but Inquries about the owner of shops indicated he had not been seen for a long time, as they claimed the shop had not been opened for businesss for close to two years. 
The attention of the plaza's chairman and some traders were drawn in order to force the shops open. There was no money found in shop 67, but in shop 64, heaps of "Ghana Must Go" bags were found loaded on the floor of the shop. When the bags were opened, they were found to contain bundles of naira notes totalling N448,860,000. Traders interviewed at the premises claimed they were not aware such money was housed in there, as the place hardly opens for business.
