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

This is in reaction to social media reports that the Lagos residence of the former governor was raided by the anti-graft agency.

“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 EFCC said in a statement published on its Facebook page.

“The Commission hereby states with high sense of responsibility that the operatives did not raid Ambode’s residence.

“Our operations are always covert until at a time when we file charges in court.
Therefore, the attempt to cast the Commission in a bad light is unacceptable as the EFCC will never engage in illegal act. We remain committed to the war against corruption,” the statement added.
