The Bankers Warehouse has written to the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), accusing the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of threatening to confiscate a certain $2.8 million and detaining two of their staff.
The Bankers Warehouse said this in a letter written to the CBN and signed by its Head of Operations, Dr. Lawrence Ijebor.
The letter titled EFCC Confiscation of Goods in Transit with Bankers Warehouse, noted that the said amount was being transported from Enugu to Lagos in a routine CIT movement operation on behalf of the Union Bank, the original owners of the money.
Ijebor noted that much as the EFCC was informed of the identities of the two men, they went ahead to detain them without confirming with the Bankers Warehouse.
The company, while frowning at the way the security agency handled the matter, it appealed to the CBN to intervene as the regulator in what it called ‘Constant Harrassment of our staff’.
