Serious commotion as Tomato Seller Claims N250m Cash Found in Balogun Market. You won’t believe what he is saying.

Following the controversy over the discovery of a staggering N15 billion in an Ikoyi, Lagos apartment, a man has reportedly shown up at the Lagos office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) claiming ownership of the N250 million found at the Balogun Market, Lagos, on Monday.

An EFCC source who did not want to be named informed Saturday Tribune that “a man came on Wednesday claiming the money belonged to him and that it was the proceeds of his trade in tomatoes.”

“We asked him what business fetched him the money, the man said he deals in bringing tomatoes from the North to sell in Lagos. We asked him why he did not put the money in bank, he said he does not use banks. Meanwhile the money is in bales with bank wrappers bearing stamps dated as recent as 6th April, 2017.

“The man was arrested, his statement taken but has been given an administrative bail as investigations continue,” the EFCC source told Saturday Tribune while adding that the money had been deposited with the Central Bank.
As of press time, EFCC spokesperson in Lagos, Sammin Amadin, was yet to respond to an inquiry on the matter.
