According to the Washington Post, it was May 18 and she and her 29-year-old son, Oly Umodu had taken free furniture and moved it into their living room.

The grandmother said she felt something unusual as she was placing the cream-coloured upholstered cushion on an oversized armchair.

Something seemed off about the chair and she felt there was a heating pad inside the chair, so she unzipped the cushion, and felt her hand around. She said it was not a heating pad but a bunch of paper.

According to her, when she pulled it out, she was shocked. The cushion was stuffed with bank deposit envelopes and manila envelopes filled with cash. In all, she found more than $36,000 (N14.940 million) cash hidden in the chair with a scalloped design that Umodu had picked up for free.
