The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday secured the conviction one Haytham Aldahrah , a Lebanese who was arrested at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport while trying to board an Egypt Air flight to Cairo for refusing  to declare the sum  $105,000 and €65,000 respectively to the Nigeria Customs Service.

Upon his arrest, Aldahrah declared the sum of $95,000 but a search conducted on him, revealed that he was carrying a further sum of $105,000 which he concealed from the authorities.

When the convict was arraigned on October 16, 2018, he pleaded not guilty to the two count charge but, two days later changed his plea to ‘guilty’.

In view of his latest plea, prosecution counsel Mohammed Gambo urged the court to convict him accordingly.

Justice Allagoa granted the prayer of the prosecution and convicted the defendant on the two counts charge. The judge sentenced the convict to forfeit 50% each of the undeclared sum he was found with, that is $52,550 and €32,250 to Treasury Single Account of the Federal Government.
