The EFCC, in a statement on its Instagram page on Tuesday said it had been inundated with
calls that operatives of the Commission raided the residence of the former governor of
Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode.
“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,” the statement said.
“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.
