Nigeria Customs earlier this month arrested man who attempted to travel with $375,000 cash to the United Arab Emirates. They have since handed the suspect over to the anti-graft body.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday confirmed that Customs had handed over one Adamu Rabiu Mohammed to them for investigations.
Adamu was arrested at the Kaduna International airport with the money as he was due to board an Ethiopian Airlines flight bound for Dubai.
Head of the EFCC office in Kaduna said they will do all it takes to get to the bottom of the attempted act. He added that the suspect will be processed for court as soon as their preliminary investigations are done.
