THISDAY authoritatively learnt  that rescue workers recovered about N1.1 million intact from the bodies and bags of the victims.
t was also gathered that various denominations of foreign currencies including £960, $7,286, €1,035, CFA5000, 15 Leons and 17 Cedis were recovered.

Meanwhile, the DNA test on the corpses and relations of the 29 identified bodies of victims of the crash will continue on Monday even as relations of the victims protested the delay in the release of the corpses.

Although the second day of the DNA test went as planned Friday, albeit slowly, most of the relations could still not do theirs thereby extending the exercise to Monday.

In total, the money and other personal effects of about 32 victims of the crash were recovered by rescue workers.

A source in the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), which coordinated the rescue efforts, said rescue workers used documents such as drivers’ license, ATM cards, office identity card and national identity cards to match some of the recovered personal effects with their owners.

The source further said the cash and other personal effects had been handed over to the police "for onward delivery to the nation’s Accident Investigation Bureau where relatives are expected to collect their loved ones’ properties."

According to a breakdown of the recovered money and personal effects, which THISDAY gleaned Friday night, late Shauib Maimunat, who died alongside her children and four others, had N156, 000 on her. She also had her BlackBerry phone, Nokia 1600 phone, a brown wallet and a brown bag.

Late Maimuna Anyene had $1,000, N1000 and a purse containing debit cards of international and local banks, including that of Citi Bank of America.

Late Chinwe Obi had on her N21,000, an Olympus camera, one Samsung handset in her brown bag.

Another victim simply identified as Alhaji had N441,000 in a purse he carried before his death.

Late Mrs. G.C Akwaeze had in her bag N56,190; £960 and a Nokia phone.
