President Muhammadu Buhari’s former Special Adviser on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) is in big trouble as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), have allegedly discovered $9 million cash at his residence.
We gathered the $9 million dollars was discovered at his residence few hours after he was arrested by a combined team of the EFCC and ONSA operatives.
However, Mr. Wilson Uwujiaren, Head, Media and Publicity of the EFCC confirmed the raid. Furthermore, an EFCC source also disclosed that Gen. Boroh was picked up from his home in Gwarinpa, Abuja on Monday March 19th, 2018 but was taken back to his residence at about 3.am on Tuesday 20th, March by the security operatives who raided his house for hours and made the cash discovery of $9 million at his home.
The source added that: “The former adviser was driven to his home in an unmarked car after his arrest. His home was searched for several hours and about $9 million cash was discovered in several safe boxes in several parts of the house.”
“The combined team of EFCC and the National Security Adviser operatives were very thorough with the search. Indeed, at a point, the operatives broke all the locks in the home including his wife’s closet. The recovered cash has been deposited at the Office of the NSA.”
It is interesting to know that Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (rtd) was sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari in recent weeks and has been replaced with Professor Charles Quaker Dokubo.
The presidency had also before now, disclosed that Buhari directed “a full investigation into the activities of the Amnesty Programme from 2015 to date, especially allegations of financial impropriety and other acts.”
