EFCC, ONSA Arrest ex-Amnesty Coordinator Boroh, Recover $9m Cash concealed in his home


A combined team of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) on Monday recovered the sum of $ 9 million while carrying a search at the home of the sacked Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Niger Delta affairs, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh.
Boroh, who was also the erstwhile Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, was arrested on Monday, after he was relieved of his job last week.
Confirming the arrest and recovery, the Head, Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujiaren, said Boroh was picked up from his home in Gwarinpa, Abuja.
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.”
Buhari sacked Boroh last week and announced Prof. Charles Dokubo as his replacement.
