Men of the Nigerian Police Force on Wednesday, raided a house in Maitama area of Abuha, which is reportedly owned by former First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan.
According to sources, the house was acquired by Patience Jonathan for her younger brother. There was, however, no occupant at the time the police invaded the house at around 5pm yesterday.
The officers who arrived in four vehicles, went ahead to search the mansion located along Igbiti Rock Street. When contacted, the spokesman of the Police Force, DCP Don Awunah, claimed he was unaware of the operation.
However, Patience Jonathan’s lawyer, Barrister Charles Ogboli, when contacted by some newsmen, confirmed the raid, saying:
“Actually, it wasn’t the EFCC that invaded the property of Dame Jonathan today, we have had issues of invasion last year by officials of NDLEA, EFCC.
“When I met with the officers who invaded the residence today, one of them who was on uniform said they are from a special unit acting on a directive from the Inspector General of Police, while another one who was on mufti claimed that he his from the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).
“They said they wanted to search the property and told me to bear a witness to their operations, but i insisted I wasn’t entering the premise, they broke the door, went in and took about three cheque books and six company seals.”
