A number of students of Chukwuemeka Emeka Odumegwu University (COOU) live off campus. Most people rush to Luxury apartments in Otoko, Umudioka and junction while some others chill out in Achalla, Ukwulu and some other quiet areas.
With the latest information from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFFC) and other government agencies that looters of public funds buried the money in graves, open field, farmland and even septic tanks, it seems it may now be more lucrative to live in Achalla and Village one where you see acres of farmland and graves in the open. Having a shovel and serious digger in your room could now be the wisest thing to do.
Some students are now advising their friends to buy shovels and diggers while returning from Easter break because you may not know the fortune that is buried behind your apartment or in the farm near your lodge.
Even those beautiful lodges in Otoko, Umudioka and junction could be gold mine especially rooms on the ground floor (after all you may not know who your Land lord’s friend is or what currency was buried under your room).
Relying on whistle blower’s tip-off, the EFFC recovered N250,558,670 (Two Hundred and Fifty Million, Five Hundred and Fifty Eight Thousand, Six Hundred and seventy Naira) as it was being changed into hard currency by a Bureau de Change operator in Balogun Market, Lagos on the 10th of April. The most recent and trending is the N13 billion of naira recovered in an apartment in Ikoyi Lagos by the EFCC on Wednesday, April 15.
So don’t doubt this story. Just know that not everybody you see moving around with shovel, digger, hoe and cutlass is an agricultural farmer. He or she could be a gold digger or better put, looted fund farmer.
