Election : EFCC Denies Raiding Tinubu’s Home

Must read

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied raiding the home of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu.

EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said the claim of raiding the home of the former governor of Lagos State by the commission was not true.

“The attention of the EFCC has been drawn to a report circulating in the social media, claiming that operatives of the Commission raided the home of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, standard-bearer of APC, in the forthcoming presidential election and recovered a humongous sum of N400 billion.

“The Commission wishes to state that no such operation was carried out by the EFCC.

“The public is enjoined to disregard the report as fake news,” he said.

The commission has however disclosed that it was able to recover a #900 million naira loot, meant for the NHIS in a bank in the country.

In a statement on Sunday, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman, said the commission released the funds to the NHIS on February 8.

The anti-graft agency said the sum “was part of the monies which some deposit money banks fraudulently withheld since 2015, and refused to remit into the NHIS’ treasury single account (TSA)”.
