Abdullahi was arrested as he was trying to board an Ethiopian Air enroute Kano to China after he failed to declare the sum of $207,000 (Two Hundred and Seven Thousand Dollars) in his possession.
However, he declared the sum of $86,000 (Eighty Six Thousand Dollars), but concealed the sum of $121,000 (One Hundred and Twenty One Thousand Dollars).
The concealed sum was discovered after he was searched by operatives of the Commission. It is an offence contrary to the Money Laundering Act 2011 (as amended).
Mr Abdullahi has been granted administrative bail and will soon be charged to court.
