He added further that during the routine baggage screening, the five bags were sighted unattended to and without tags, “containing fresh bulk items suspected to be money from the aroma perceived from the sack.

“The owner of the money later showed up but couldn’t state the exact money in the sack or present any document authenticating the genesis of the money.

“However, his inability to give any concrete explanation made him become uncomfortable and he disappeared into thin air before the arrival of EFCC operatives,” Mr. Bappa said.
