A controversial online portal, Sahara Reporters, has obtained the full list of occupants of a swanky apartment building in Lagos, where operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, uncovered $43 million.
The building, located at 16 Osborne Road, in Ikoyi, has nine floors of 19 Apartments, and two penthouses.
It was shocking that the Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi’s name was not among the owners of any of the flats, as been speculated.
As earlier reported, the luxury building is owned by a former Peoples Democratic Party Chairman, Ahmed Muazu, who retained for himself the penthouses, 10A and B, as well as Apartments 11A and 11B.
