Alleged money laundering: FG tenders before court m cash allegedly recovered from former Chief of Air Staff, Umar Mohammed

The Federal Government on Thursday March 25 tendered before a Federal High Court in Abuja the sum of one million dollars allegedly recovered from the residence of a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Commodore Umar Mohammed (rtd).

 

The former Air Chief who was in office from September 2010 to October 2012, was re-arraigned alongside his company before Justice Inyang Ekwo on a three-count charge bordering on money laundering, illegal possession of firearms and possession of official documents without lawful authority.

 

An agent of the Department of State Services DSS who appeared as the first prosecution witness in the case identified the three bags in which the money allegedly recovered from the former Air chief’s house was stashed.

 

According to the DSS agent, the three bags labelled A, B and C contained US dollars, Barbados dollars, Naira notes among others.

 

The bags of money were then admitted as evidence while the judge ordered the court registrar to safekeep the money with the Central Bank of Nigeria pending further order of the court.
