JUST IN!!! We Didn’t Raid Ambode’s Residence – EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied raiding the residence of the immediate past governor of Lagos, Akinwunmi Ambode.

The anti-graft agency’s operatives stormed Mr Ambode’s residence in his hometown of Epe, Lagos, on Tuesday morning following the freezing of the sum of N9.9 billion linked to Ambode.

They also searched Ambode’s former chief of staff’s residence located in the same Epe neighbourhood.

The commission, in a statement on Tuesday, said its operatives were only carrying out investigation.

“We need to state for the records that the EFCC did not raid Ambode’s house. It is instructive that his administration, like other former governors is under investigation, since they no longer constitutionally enjoy immunity against prosecution,” EFCC said.

“The Commission hereby states with high sense of responsibility that the operatives did not raid Ambode’s residence.

“Whatever the Commission is presently doing with regards to the investigation is in line with its mandate and the rule of law.

“We wish to inform the social media to be circumspect in the reportage of any news with regards to investigation activities of the Commission.

“Our operations are always covert until at a time when we file charges in court.

“Therefore, the attempt to cast the Commission in a bad light is unacceptable as the EFCC will never engage in illegal act. We remain committed to the war against corruption.”
