According to the US Navy, Agunbiade effectively managed its largest cash disbursing office handling 45 million dollars which is approximately N17 billion.
The money accounted for approximately 70% of its overseas disbursing volume.
The US Navy said while serving as disbursing officer, comptroller department, Camp Lemonnier Djibouti from October 2019 to July 2020, Lieutenant Agunbiade managed $45 million (N17,378,550,000) dollars in cash transaction well.
