Abuja - A man has been arraigned after he was accused by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of swallowing $115,000 in cash in order to avoid declaring it to customs officials.

The accused, Onwuasonya Augustine, was held with five others on Tuesday on four counts of money laundering, Punch reports.

EFCC prosecutor Ayokunle Fayanju alleged that the six men committed the crime on August 25 of this year, adding that they were apprehended at a five-star hotel in Lagos.
