We didn’t raid Ambode’s residence ― EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has denied reports of raiding the Lagos residence of former governor Akinwumi Ambode earlier today (Tuesday).

In a statement released by the EFCC acting head of Media & Publicity, Tony Orilade stated that the commission, however, said that the former governor is under its investigation.

Mr Orilade 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.”
