Following news that a Federal High Court has ordered the freezing of three bank accounts allegedly belonging to the Lagos State Government over alleged N9.9bn fraud, Nigerians on social media have been commenting.
According to Punch, Kungmi Daniel, the head of the EFCC Investigating team said that the EFCC discovered “a huge inflow of N9,927,714,443.29” from the state accounts into an FCMB bank account opened on September 17, 2018 during the Akinwunmi Ambode administration.
These accounts were said to be operated by the Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Lagos State, Adewale Adesanya, for money laundering.
These are some of the comments by Nigerians on Twitter about the former’s governor alleged involvement in the fraud allegation;
Ambode has 9.9 billion stashed in just “one of his accounts”
Lord knows if I enter politics I’d loot the shit out of this country

Just a reminder that Ambode was a terrible governor and deserved to be replaced.

Just read the press release from EFCC they only mentioned that the accounts were opened during Ambode's tenure.

Yari, what were you doing with 21 exotic cars when you're not a car dealer?
Ambode, how dare you keep N9.2bn in hidden bank account?
We in your party will not defend you. Nigeria is our priority, not individuals' illegitimate enrichment and that's why Buhari is in our hearts.

• EFCC seized 6 multimillion properties belonging to Okorocha.
• EFCC discovered 21 exotic cars in Yari's country home.
• EFCC gets court order to freeze N9.2bn account traced to Ambode.
• Dariye and Nyame are already in prison.
Yet @MBuhari protects APC leaders from EFCC

So many questions running through my head rn…

The results of the search I did on the account details linked to Ambode which were provided by the EFCC. They all reflected Lagos State gov.
This is a perceived witch-hunting. It was reported in June that loyalists of Tinubu will bring up such. Anyways, no pity for politicians. pic.twitter.com/EHzRHXhBZF

I need clarification, was it just one of Ambode's account that had N9.9billion or accounts?
Secondly, was it linked to Ambode or the Permanent Secretary? I'm reading too many scattered news.
