The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has asked the Federal High Court in Enugu State to grant an order of interim forfeiture of the $2.8million seized by its officers in Enugu State.
The motion was filed at the Federal High Court holden in Enugu State.
The EFCC claimed that Union Bank, who is claiming ownership of the money, is yet to appear before any of its offices to establish its claim.
According to the anti-graft agency, it also filed an affidavit of urgency for the matter to be heard on December 27, 2018, before a vacation Judge sitting in Port Harcourt.
EFCC had claimed that it intercepted $2.8million cash movement by two persons suspected to be money launderers at Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu.
