The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied raiding the house of Ex-Governor of Lagos State, Akinwumi Ambode.
In a signed statement, EFCC spokesman, Tony Orilade, asserted that Ambode was under investigation but its operatives did not raid his residence.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has in the early hours of today, been inundated with calls that operatives of the Commission raided the residence of the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwumi Ambode.
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.
The Commission hereby states with a 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.Tony Orilade – politicsnigeria.com
The EFCC also informed the social media to be careful in reporting any news regarding its activities.
