Nigeria's Buhari suspends spy chief after $43m found in Lagos

Nigeria's Buhari suspends spy chief after $43m found in Lagos

A three-member panel, led by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, will investigate who authorised the release of the money to the NIA and whether or not there was any breach of the law or security procedures, Mr Buhari's office added.

Mr Oke would remain suspended pending the outcome of the investigation, it said.

Last week, the EFCC said it carried out the raid after a tip-off that a woman, looking "haggard" and wearing "dirty clothes", was taking bags in and out of the seventh-floor flat.

The "neatly arranged" cash was stashed in "sealed wrappers" in wardrobes and cabinets in the four-bedroom flat, the EFCC added.

In March, it said it had found "crispy" banknotes worth $155,000 at the airport in northern Kaduna city.
