A patriotic and good Nigerian, Aliyu Usman Tilde, alerted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of a suspicious lodgement of N900, 000 into his account in a commercial bank for this kind recession. The money, which was mistakenly deposited in Tilde’s account by the Federal Ministry of Justice, was reported to the Gombe Zonal Office of the EFCC, which promptly delved into the matter and discovered that it was paid in by the ministry in error.
Tilde, who owns the account having done no business with anybody to warrant such credit in his account, reported the suspicious lodgement to the Gombe zonal office of the EFCC. The EFCC through discrete investigation discovered that the money belongs to a law firm that was engaged by the Federal Ministry of Justice in a case that involved a former staff of Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
While commending the patriotism of Tilde, the EFCC calls on the general public to emulate such honest attitude by reporting suspicious lodgement/transaction to relevant authorities.
