The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has said that it would embark on mass protest that would shut down the country if President Muhammadu Buhari fails to name the owner of $43m recovered from an Ikoyi apartment in Lagos state.

The umbrella organisation of all political parties in the country alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari's government was shielding the real owner of the sums of $43,449,947, £27,800 and N23, 218,000 recovered from an Ikoyi apartment in Lagos state.

CNPP also warned that it would organise mass protest if the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) fail to name and prosecute the owner of the stash.

The group further dismissed the claims that the money belongs to National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

This was contained in a statement on Saturday signed by CNPP Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu.

It reads: “We're worried that the current anti-graft war is becoming a show as each day passes”.

“It is more worrisome when you begin to hear that a government security agency, the NIA, which is not a revenue generating organ of the federal government, is laying claim to the recovered.

“The NIA angle to the controversy is nothing but a deliberate plot by the federal government to cover up the true identity of the looter.

“How can the NIA claim to own N13 billion cash stashed in a private residential apartment; NIA has no office in Lagos?”

“The war against corruption is now being exposed for what it truly is on daily basis, a lopsided fight against perceived enemies of the present administration, while all members of the ruling party are shielded from prosecution.

“The case of the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) is still fresh in our minds; how President Muhammadu Buhari quickly absolved him of any wrong doing even before any investigation was carried.

“The Minister of Transport has been at the centre of several financial scandals which were never investigated.

“But any plot to cover up the owner of the Ikoyi apartment loot will be strongly resisted, with the CNPP leading the struggle. Enough is enough”, the CNPP stated.
