When news first broke that EFCC officials have traced $3 million of the controversial London-Paris Club loan refund to a governor, Nigerians were furious to hear that he allegedly used it to build a hotel.
According to the report, the cash is believed to be part of the N19billion illegally deducted from the refund by the NGF.
NAIJ.com gathered that the cash was found in the account of a member of the House of Representatives who got it through a proxy, the lawmaker’s brother.
Below are some reactions from Nigerians to the news:
Meanwhile, a source quoted in the report, said:a source quoted in the report, said:“The EFCC is still investigating the N19billion allegedly diverted from the loan refund. The commission has so far interrogated 15 companies, more than 10 individuals and over eight bureaux de change used to divert the cash.
“The latest bend of the investigation is the discovery of $3million linked with another governor who benefited from the illegal deduction. The governor had engaged a member of the House of Representatives(who was also a former commissioner) to launder his share.
”The lawmaker was said to have wired the $3million into his brother’s account before moving it into his own."
