The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has intercepted bags containing N49 million cash at Kaduna Airport.

The anti-graft agency made the interception on Tuesday, March 14 at the airport. It will be recalled that the Kaduna Airport became the diversion point for flights scheduled for Abuja Airport due to the repair work going on planned for six weeks.

Although the owner of the cash has not been named, there is suspicion that it is related to illegal activities considering that the EFCC was involved and was on hand to intercept it perhaps based on intelligence report.
