The Nigerian anti-corruption unit discovered more than $43 million in US dollars at an upscale apartment in Lagos.
The anti-graft agency said in a statement it raided the apartment Wednesday after a tip off about a “haggard” woman in “dirty clothes” taking bags in and out of the apartment.
The agency said it also found 23.2 million naira (Nigerian currency worth $75,000) and £27,800 (UK currency, worth $35,000 US) “neatly arranged” inside cabinets hidden behind wooden panels of a bedroom wardrobe.
The commission said the funds are “suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity” but no arrests have been made yet.
