Alade, who continued his testimony as the first prosecution witness in the ongoing trial of an aide to Fayose, Mr. Abiodun Agbele, on money laundering charges, said the huge cash was in N1000 and N500 bills The Punch Newspaper reports


The bank testified under cross-examination by the defence counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), that his team evacuated the huge cash, allegedly airlifted to Akure airport twice by Obanikoro, before they began counting.

He said he “got worried” when he saw the large consignment of cash.

The banker said the counting went on between 8am and 3pm for 10days.

The witness said, “It took us 10 whole days to count the money after we brought it from the Akure Airport. It took us from 8am to 3pm daily to count the money. Some time, the officials counting it would take time off.”

He said the total amount was N1,219,490,000.

Agbele is being prosecuted along with three companies – Sylvan Mcnamara Ltd., De Privateer and Spotless – on 11 counts of money laundering involving about N4,685,723,000,000 allegedly taken by former National Security Adviser  from the account of the office of the NSA domicile in the Central Bank of Nigeria.

The prosecution alleged that the accused persons knew the N4,685,723,000,000 formed part of the proceeds of alleged unlawful activities by Dasuki.

The prosecution also alleged. that on June 17, 2014, Agbele, Obanikoro and other suspects (said to be at large), took N1,219,000,000 from the total N4,685,723,000,000, when they “reasonably ought to have known” that the money was part of proceeds of Dasuki’s unlawful activity.”

Earlier on Monday, Ozekhome withdrew his appearance for the second defendant, Sylvan Mcnamara Ltd. (a firm believed to be owned by Obanikoro).

Alade had also in his evidence-in-chief, identified documents, including account opening packages for the accounts of Fayose, Spotless Investment and Deprivateer and statements of transactions in the accounts.

The documents were later admitted by the court in evidence.

He told the court that Agbele gave directives on how the money was disbursed and went away with the cash balance of over N230m, which he (Agbele) allegedly took to Ado Ekiti (Ekiti State Capital).
