The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has stepped up investigation to determine how a Nigerian man identified as Yasir Salihu Abdullahi, came by a total of 849 Automated Teller Machine cards (ATM) of various Nigerian banks and the reason the cards were being shipped out of the country.

Abdullahi, according to PM News, was arrested at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Friday August 3, as he prepared to board an Egypt Air heading for Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He was intercepted after a scan of his luggage by officers of the Nigeria Customs Service revealed the suspicious items. The officers then alerted the EFCC’s office in Kano.
