EFCC Invades Atiku’s Sons’ Apartment In Abuja
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were reported to have raided the apartments of Aliyu and Mustapha Atiku-Abubakar, two sons of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in Maitama, Abuja.
The Punch quoted Mr. Paul Ibe, the Head of the Atiku Media Office, as saying this on Monday,
According to him, EFCC conducted the search on the apartment where Aliyu and Mustapha reside on Saturday. He added that they found nothing incriminating on Atiku’s sons.
The raid on Aliyu and Mustapha’s residence comes a day after claims emerged that Mr Abubakar’s running mate, Peter Obi, had his bank accounts frozen by federal authorities.
The building also houses an apartment occupied by Chiemeka Orji, son of ex-Abia State Governor, Theodore Orji.
Premium Times also quoted a source as saying that “when the EFCC officers arrived on Saturday, they met Theodore Orji’s sons at home, because they both live in the same building.”
“They asked to see the apartment of Aliyu and Mustapha Atiku-Abubakar but Theodore Orji’s sons refused to show them, saying their friends are out of the country, anyway.”
“The EFCC operatives then said they have intelligence that a large cache of dollars had been kept in the apartment which they had come to recover,” the source said.
“They forcibly searched the apartment, but there was no hard currency or anything that could be construed as fraudulently damning.”
