The Federal Government has tendered before a Federal High Court in Abuja nine bags and boxes filled with local and foreign currencies, all of which were allegedly recovered from a Justice of the Supreme Court, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, last year.
 
The Federal Government is prosecuting Justice Ngwuta on 13 counts, including passport fraud, money laundering allegations of retention and concealment of origin of the various sums of money contained in the nine bags and boxes.
 
The fifth prosecution witness, John Utazi,‎ an officer of the DSS, had narrated how he led a team of other operatives to search  Justice Ngwuta’s official residence in Abuja.
