Nigerians are now blowing the whistle to alert the EFCC on hidden money stashed all over the country.
The EFCC uncovered about $38million, N23million and £27,000 from an Ikoyi apartment. This is the latest loot that the EFCC has found this week. The numbers can make someone dizzy. The amount is just staggering.
Thanks to the whistle blowing policy, the EFCC is finding stolen money faster than the Colombian government discovering Pablo Escobar's hidden money in Narcos.
It's almost unbelievable to think the many empty houses we pass every day in Ikoyi has millions of dollars and Naira stashed in them. It's the same thing as standing on a spot and not knowing there is a treasure buried under it.
This describes the struggle of the common man in Nigeria. Money is everywhere, you can feel it but you don't know exactly where it is. It's frustratingly elusive.
A lot of sharp guys in the know are now snitching and exposing a lot of corrupt politicians. Nigeria is hard. Money must be made at all costs. Everyone wants a slice of the action right now.
Anyway, whistle blowing is the new Yahoo-Yahoo. Why work all month and get a miserable pay when you can call the EFCC and blow the lid on some hidden money that you are aware of?
Just imagine how much the whistle blower who tipped the EFCC to the money in the Ikoyi apartment would get? That's a whole lot of money. Even the boys who press the keyboards all day won't see that
This might be a fool's journey. You have to be an insider within the corruption cabal to know where exactly the loot is. Who cares though? Fortune favours the bold.
There is a strong temptation to buy a torch light and search many of the abandoned/unoccupied houses in Ikoyi and Victoria Island. You never know, you might strike gold and stumble on a stash of dollar bundles hidden away.
As a patriotic citizen, it is your right to find where these corrupt politicians are hiding our money. It is your civic duty. Also, it will make you a rich man overnight. Serving Nigeria is not free, there must be some monetary reward attached to it at the end of the day.
You might likely need the money to relocate if your identity is compromised and the corruption cabal comes after you.
