EFCC Speaks On The Invasion Of Ex-Gov. Ambode’s Residence

Date:

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday denied that it raided the Epe, Lagos residence of former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The Commission noted, that it does not carry out illegal acts not in line with its mandate, and that it is merely investigating Ambode, amongst other former Governors, as they are no longer covered by immunity.

EFCC Spokesperson, Tony Orilade, who stated this in a release to newsmen, said: “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.

“Whatever the Commission is presently doing with regards to the investigation is in line with its mandate and the rule of law.

“We wish to inform the Social Media to be circumspect in the reportage of any news with regards to investigation activities of the Commission.

“As a tradition, the Commission does not carry out investigation on the pages of the newspapers or through the media. 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”.
