The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Tuesday evening, said that an attempt by its operatives “to execute a search warrant on the residences of a former Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode” earlier in the day was “resisted by hoodlums loyal to the governor.”

“The thugs attacked the operatives and vandalised their vehicle,” EFCC Head, Media & Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said in a statement made available to News Express.

According to him, “The Commission 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.

“However, the Commission’s operatives were attacked and prevented from executing the search warrant in Epe by irate youths who injured three officers and damaged EFCC official vehicle.

“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.”
