EFCC admits raidon Ambode’s residence but attacked by hoodlums.

In a statement released by EFCC head of media and publicity Wilson Uwajuren, he said;

EFCC admits its officers attempted to search residence of Ambode but was stopped by the neighbours

The unprovoked attack on the operatives where it molest nobody is unaccepted. 

The agency therefore frowns at the attempt to manipulate the video of the search to create the wrong impression that officers attempted to residents of the Epe home of the governor. 

It is also not true that the search was an attempt to plant foreign currencies in the home of the former governor,” he said.

In a statement released after the report of EFCC raid on the residence of Ambode, the denies its officer had attempted search of Ambode’s residence, the agency said;

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has since early hours of today, been inundated with calls that operatives of the Commission raided the residence of the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi 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 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.
As a tradition, the Commission does not carry out investigation on the pages of the newspapers or through the media.

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