The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has seized gold worth about N1.1b being allegedly exported to Dubai illegally at the Abuja airport.

The EFCC named one Abba Ali Yahaya as the brain behind the deal.

Apart from impounding his passport, about €112,000 undeclared by Abba, has also been forfeited over alleged violation of the nation’s Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, The Nation reports.

The precious metal was handed over to the suspect by a syndicate of illegal miners operating in Zamfara State.

The anti-graft agency is already on the trail of four members of the said syndicate said to have perfected ways of beating security agencies at the nation’s airports.
