EFCC operatives reportedly stormed a building housing apartments belonging to Atiku’s sons and the son of former governor Theodore Orji
According to newsmen, the building also houses an apartment occupied by Chiemeka Orji, son of a former governor of Abia state, Theodore Orji.
The operatives were said to have searched Orji’s son’s apartment, Atiku’s sons were not around, while Orji’s son was supposedly arrested and taken to the EFCC office alongside his brother.
When contacted, an EFCC representative reportedly said he had no immediate knowledge of the operation and expressed strong doubts that Abubakar’s sons’ home could be stormed.
The development was reportedly confirmed by Paul Ibe, a spokesman for the Atiku Abubakar family, on Sunday, December 9th.
Ibe stated that the officers who conducted the grievous act of intimidation were unable to find anything implicating.
According to sources informed about the raid, those who executed it were from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Sources further claimed that while Aliyu and Mustapha were not around when the raid occurred, as they are both studying for master’s degrees in foreign universities, the anti-graft operatives apprehended those with whom they share the building and took them to the EFCC office.
They further claimed that some properties were seized.
