He kept 9.8 million dollars, about 4 billion Naira in a house tucked away in a slum.

Someone (a whistle blower) told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and now he may be going to spend a long time in jail if found guilty.

The man in question, Andrew Yakubu who is a former Group Managing Director of Nigeria’s oil company, NNPC was formally charged on Friday by EFCC with asset concealment and money laundering.

There are six reasons he will be charged as contained in court papers filed on 9 March at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

But it may surprise you to know that Yakubu is denying that he dipped his hands in the cookie jar when he was in charge of NNPC and is even taking EFCC to court claiming that all the money was gift.

However, the EFCC is also telling the court that it is not qualified to hear the case.

The drama continues and Nigerians are watching.
