$43 Million Was Found in a Nigerian Apartment And Internet is Claiming It


I am sure you regret deleting all those emails you got from that Nigerian prince.

$43 million in U.S. dollar notes was uncovered in an apartment in Nigeria by the country’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

And now everyone on internet is claiming the money.

The news went viral after social media users picked up on the fact that the event occurred in Nigeria — a reference to the many scam emails often sent from a “Nigerian royal figure” soliciting users to transfer thousands of dollars with the promise of a larger reward at the end.

According to the EFCC, in addition to the U.S. dollars, $75,000 worth of Nigerian currency and $35,000 in British pound sterling were also found “neatly arranged” inside fireproof cabinets hidden behind wooden panels.

Investigations are ongoing, said, Nigerian officials.

Earlier last week, the EFCC uncovered some $817,000 in cash from a market in Lagos, and s, me $1.5 million at a shopping mall.

Nigeria is ranked 136 out of 176 countries on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index in 2016.
