The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that its men raided the Abuja home of Senator Danjuma Goje.
Reports had it last night that the anti-graft agency raided the house of the foremr Gomb governor and discovered the sum of N18 million; $19,000 and 4,000 Saudi Riyal in the house.
But in a tweet, the EFCC said:
Please disregard online reports claiming the EFCC raided the Abuja home of Senator Danjuma Goje.
The report is FALSE as the Commission was not a part of any such activity.
It has however been established that the raid was carried out by the police.
The operation, which began after 5:00 p.m. and went on till dark.
Reports said at least 12 vehicles, including about eight police vans were stationed outside the building while at least 25 mobile police officers were sighted outside the building, located on Haile Selassie Street, Asoroko.
A security source said the operatives were from the Monitoring Unit of the Inspector General of Police, and were on a mission to recover funds believed to be hidden in the building.
A whistleblower is believed to have provided that information to the police. The police is yet to comment.
Mr. Goje, a serving senator, is currently being prosecuted for alleged corruption while he was Gombe governor.
