$15m Bank Account Lodgement: Nigeria Army General’s Wife Refutes Claim




Chizoba Vivian Nengite, the wife of Brig-Gen. Charles Nengite, yesterday refuted allegations that some lodgements, ranging from $11 million to $15 million, were found in her bank account in the United States (U.S.A).

Mrs Nengite said claims that she was under investigation for money laundering by law enforcement agencies in America were false.

She threatened to seek legal redress against the sponsors or publishers of the “false information”.

There were reports, last December, that the Nigerian Army detained Brig-Gen. Nengite following the discovery of $16 million in a bank account belonging to his wife’s U.S bank account.

He was said to have been held by the Army’s Special Investigations Bureau (SIB), a department that handles matters on fraud and money laundering.

But Mrs Nengite, in a statement through her lawyer, Taofik Adeleke, described publications linking her to any such money as “false and malicious”.
