The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Enugu Zonal Office, yesterday, intercepted $2.8million from two people suspected to be money launderers at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.

EFCC’s acting spokesman, Tony Orilade, in a statement in Abuja, said the suspects- Ighoh Augustine and Ezekwe Emmanuel- allegedly working for a company, Bankers Warehouse, were apprehended based on intelligence report.

Orilade maintained that upon their arrests, the duo were caught with consignments of two suitcases, containing $1.4million each, totalling $2.8 million, at the departure lounge of the airport while about to board an Arik Air evening flight to Lagos.

“During interrogation, the suspects confessed that they had been in the business of conveying cash for ‘some notable banks’ for over six years and were in the process of doing same for Union Bank Plc, located at New Market, Onitsha in Anambra State, when they were caught.”He said the suspects further confessed that they had so far carried out such assignments ‘four times this year,’ noting that they were giving useful information to operatives of the Commission and would be charged to court soon.
