The money was left behind by the Daura’s predecessor Ita Ekpeyong.
It was alleged that Ekpeyong received N20 billion from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at the end of former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
Ekpeyong, it was also alleged, converted N17 billion into United States of America (USA) dollars, which he left behind when he handed over to Daura.
Daura lost his job for ordering operatives of the DSS to lay siege to the National Assembly on Tuesday, preventing lawmakers from entering the complex in the morning.
