The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has denied that N10.9 billion belonging to the National Intelligence Agency was stolen by its official.

EFCC had discovered about $43.5 million, £27,800 and N23.2 million inside Apartment 7B, Osborne Towers in Ikoyi, Lagos in April 2017.

Later, there reports that a Brigadier General, Jafaru Mohammed, allegedly stole a chunk of the money to purchase properties.

But in a statement, EFCC Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren said Mohammed was not its staff, adding that the claim was intended to mislead the public.

He said, “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report by an online news medium alleging that a certain Jafaru Mohammed whom it claimed stole N10.9billion from the NIA Ikoyi loot is an accountant of the EFCC.

“The claim is false and intended to mislead the public. For the avoidance of doubt, the EFCC has no accountant by name, Jafaru Mohammed and could not have appointed him to serve in another agency.
