The whistle-blower who informed the EFCC where a former managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Andrew Yakubu, hid safes stacked in foreign currencies has said that the safes were four not just the only one found in his Kaduna residence.
DAILY NIGERIAN exclusively reported on February 4 how a large fire-proof safe was found in Mr Andrew’s house in a Kaduna slum, Sabon Tasha, when EFCC operatives raided the house on February 3.
Credible security sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that the whistle-blower (name withheld) told EFCC investigators the safes in the house were four in number, and that the remaining three cash boxes were taken to unknown destination a few days to the EFCC raid.
Asked whether he had any hint as to where the rest of the safes were hidden, the whistle-blower said he did not know.
He was also quoted as saying that had EFCC not swung into action on February 3, chances were that the remaining one would also be evacuated.
According to the sources, Mr Yakubu had suspected that operatives of the commission had mounted surveillance on the house and ordered the evacuation of the safes.
