The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and ONSA, have discovered $9 million cash at the residence of the sacked Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, retired Brig.-Gen. Paul Tarelah Boroh.

Boroh, who was Special Adviser on Niger Delta to President Muhammadu Buhari has also been arrested.

The discovery of the cash was made a few hours after his arrest by a combined team of EFCC and operatives of the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

The Head, Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujiaren, confirmed the arrest and cash recovery in response to THISDAY’s enquiries.

A senior security agent said Boroh was picked up from his home in Gwarinpa, Abuja, on Monday.

He was reported to have been taken back to his residence at about 3 a.m. Tuesday by the security operatives who raided his house for hours and made the cash discovery of $9 million at his home.

He remains in the custody of the EFCC.

“The former adviser was driven to his home in an unmarked car after his arrest. His home was searched for several hours and about $9 million cash was discovered in several safe boxes in several parts of the house,” the senior security agent stated.

“The combined team of EFCC and the National Security Adviser operatives were very thorough with the search. Indeed, at a point, the operatives broke all the locks in the home including his wife’s closet. The recovered cash has been deposited at the Office of the NSA.”

    Can this be true? But Buhari haters have continuously alleged that the EFCC prosecutes only the PDP/Jonathan snakes! If those allegations are true, then Retired General Boroh must have served under Ebele Jonathan!

    it was done because this person is from south what happen to IGP, Ibrahim Magu and others accused of corruption in your government sack and prosecute anyone mention in corruption in your government, this will make all Nigerians believe you are truly fighting corruption maybe you suspect this person of trying to decamp to other party and being a strong man he is, you want to cage him so that he will not have the chance to play 2019 politics

    why are u so politically insensitive? Why wasn’t he arrested while he was still serving Buhari? Why was it after he was sacked? I’m not sure it wasn’t a setup. In Nigeria’s politics once a person is no more ready to dance to circular political tune the next thing is Victimization. I can’t trust these politicians one bit. If Buhari wants to sincerely prove that he isn’t selective in his anticorruption crusade, he should subject his ministers to thorough, fair, open and unbiased financial probe. We would be dazed at the height of financial corruption at the high places.
