The videos published by Daily Nigerian, an online newspaper, showed the governor receiving bundles of dollars and putting them into his flowing dress known as ‘babanriga’ in the northern part of Nigeria.
The governor had reportedly requested $5 million from the contractors who recorded the video while handing part of the payment to him.
