The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday intercepted the sum of N32,400,000 (Thirty-two Million, Four Hundred Thousand Naira) allegedly suspected to be used for vote buying in Lagos.
Operatives of the Lagos Zonal Command of the Commission made the recovery.
The suspect involved has been taken into custody for further questioning.
The Chairman of the Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa has implored all personnel of the Commission deployed for election monitoring duties to show courage and not give room for unscrupulous persons to undermine the integrity of the elections through financial inducement.
Tactical teams of operatives are currently on ground in all the states of the federation and the FCT.
The anti-graft agency called on members of the public to report anyone trying to buy or sell votes by making use of the EFCC financial crimes reporting App, Eagle Eye, which is available for download on the Google Play or Apple store.
