During investigation, Abbas said he got the money from his supermarket business profit and was taking it to his country to invest.

The EFCC is still conducting an investigation as at the time of this report.

He is facing money laundering charges.

Indians, Chinese and Lebanese people are the top earners in the Nigeria’s business sector.

Most of these businessmen are making money they can’t make in their country in Nigeria.

It is projected that in the next 10 years, younger Nigerians will find it hard to venture into the business world because of the presence of these top earners.

It is highly recommended that The Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria regulate this sector to protect the interest of Nigerian citizens.

    I have no problem with the source of his money as long as he can account for it.
    It may be from robbery or from a politician

    Make una siddon dey look as Chinese, Lebanese and other Asians take over Nigeria’s economy while our youth are jobless or busy doing yahoo yahoo. How are foreigners making money in Nigeria while a significant number of Nigerians are barely able to eat decent meals or pay their bills? What are foreigners doing right that we are not, on our own soil??? As for that Lebanese, did he pay taxes on his profit from his business? Why was he taking Naira to Lebanon, is Naira legal tender in his country? It’s probably one of those bastard politicians using him to hide stolen booty. Everything is possible in Nigeria. May God deliver us

      I thought as much. The money was given to him by politicians to take to Egypt. He is a money smuggler.

      Naija matter tire me. Especially these Indians. Anywhere you see them, they think of themselves first and care less about foreigners even in their our country. The future of Nigeria is uncertain with these elements in our midst

    This will definitely be the end of the story because this is Nigeria, he’s probably a smurfer, he could have declared it if acquired legally.

    If you look at the way he is seated like a village king in the picture, you will know he already knows nothing can happen to him. The sitring position is saying Nigerians can go to hell for all he cares!

    He doesn’t look scared or shaken in above PIC, because he knows nothing will happen to him. Nigerians are their own enemies, Nigerians will prefer to give contracts to foreigners on their soil rather than an indigenous firm that’s competent.
    Have seen enough incompetent foreigners, that are awarded contracts they can’t execute but engage Nigerians and pay them peanuts. They hate Nigerians but love our Cash.
