The resident of the former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje, was yesterday stormed by operatives of the Nigerian Police.
The former governor who is now a senator is being prosecuted for money laundering by the EFCC.
His trial started in 2014, but it has dragged on ever since.
It was initially reported that operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) carried out a search, but it has not been confirmed that they were police officers.
Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC, had declined to confirm or deny if the EFCC was part of the operation, saying he had no information on it but later issued a brief statement, where he said “the commission was not part of such activity”.
Jimoh Moshood, spokesman of the police, could not be reached for comments as of the time this report was filed.
Goje was governor from 2003 to 2011. He won a senatorial election on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ticket, but he later defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).topics from
