Whistle-blower exposes N8.4b fake bank account
Who owns an account in which N8.4billion has been found?

The huge deposit has been traced to a bank which is believed to have assisted the money launderers to convert the cash to dollars.
There was suspicion last night that the cash may have been wired into some foreign accounts, but the government has filed an ex parte motion to place it under temporary assets forfeiture.
A telecommunications company has gone to court, claiming ownership of the money, The Nation learnt.
