The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has come out to deny claims that they raided the home of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in search of N400 billion.
A report went viral on social media that the commission had invaded the house of the All Progressives Congress (APC) flagbearer in a bid to expose the former Lagos state governor.
In a statement released by the EFCC on Sunday afternoon, February 19, 2023, the anti-graft agency denied recovering N400 billion from the presidential candidate’s house in Budillon.
The statement read: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, 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 the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming presidential elections and recovered a humongous sum of N400billion.
“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.”
