EFCC Raids Ambode’s Home in Epe
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday morning raided the home of the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode in Epe area of Lagos.
Punch reports that a top aide of the former governor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that EFCC operatives raided Ambode’s home.
He revealed that Ambode was not in the country and the home had been raided in his absence.
The commission’s spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade, said the operatives were in Ambode’s house as part of investigations.
He said the visit was not a raid but “We are there for ongoing investigation.”
The anti-graft agency had in a recent statement by Orilade announced the freezing of three banks accounts linked to Ambode which were allegedly used in the diversion of N9.9bn in September 2018.
