Immediate past Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu allegedly kept about $1m in the soak away pit in his house, reports New Telegraph.
The money is believed to be part of the money the former Chief of Air Staff made through some contracts and procurements in NAF.
The money has been traced to the $2.1 b arms scam deal.
The money was retrieved when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) carried out a search on Amosu’s residence in Badagry.
The operative had during the search discovered the fresh small soakaway pit in the house.
The operatives suspected foul play and decided to break the pit.
After breaking the pit, $1 million was found in it.
The money has been confiscated.
The commission had earlier confiscated houses and other properties belonging to Amosu.
