Anti-graft operatives on Tuesday morning entered the residence of former Lagos Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, raiding the building as part of an ongoing corruption investigation.
EFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade disclosed that Mr Ambode is under a corruption probe, a few months after he left office.
“It is just the continuation of the ongoing investigation,” Orilade said.
The residence of Mr Ambode in his hometown of Epe was being searched as of 9:35 a.m. when Mr Orilade confirmed the development.
The residence of the former governor’s chief of staff in the same Epe neighbourhood was also being searched.
Billions of naira were allegedly misappropriated in the four years of Mr Ambode in office, and detectives have been busy trying to untangle all webs around the alledged corruption.
About two weeks ago, multiple bank accounts holding billions and linked to Mr Ambode were frozen as part of the probe.
Mr Ambode denied links to both the accounts and any allegations of corruption while in office.
More details shortly.
