Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that the controversies generated following the discovery of N18billion in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos is not good for the image of the country.
He has therefore called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to immediately unveil owners of the money to end the controversies.
Saraki stated this when he spoke in an interview section with Arise Television, adding that there was no reason for the controversies the money has generated in the first place.
“I don’t think I should speculate or join the conversation on who the money belongs to. I know it is the responsibility of the EFCC to reveal who the money belongs to. This is very simple. The agency that recovered the money should reveal who owns the money to put an end to this.
“It is not good for the image of this country. We have heard different views, whether it is an individual, company, state government or an agency. I think this this circus must end.”
While the EFCC is yet to disclose the owners of the money, it was however reported that the commission had carried out more searches on other flats in the building the money was discovered.
