“We were attacked by Ambode’s hoodlums” – EFCC says

The Economic  and Financial Crimes Commission has finally admitted raiding former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode’s home after earlier denying the report, Jeossyjs gathered.

Though eyewitnesses said the anti-graft agency’s operatives were stopped by residents of Epe (Ambode’s hometown), the EFCC claimed they were attacked by Ambode’s hoodlums in a statement released by its head of media and publicity Wilson Uwajuren. He further disclosed that three officers were injured in the attack, while the EFCC official vehicle was damaged.

Wilson said

 “the EFCC had obtained valid warrant to conduct search on Ambode’s residences in Park View,  Ikoyi and country home in Epe,  as part of ongoing investigation of alleged malfeasance”.

“The attack was totally unprovoked as the Commission’s operatives were civic and did not molest anybody. The Commission therefore frowns at the attempt to manipulate the video of the search to create the wrong impression that officers of the agency molested residents at 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 added.
