A high-powered team of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives has raided the Kano residence of the former Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Bello Adoke.
The residence, located at 3 Alu Avenue in Kano, Kano State, was ransacked by EFCC operatives in an effort to discover evidence of financial crimes committed by Mr. Adoke during his tenure as Attorney General under the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
The raid was carried out from 12 noon to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, according to an EFCC source.
The operatives search all rooms and water tanks in the house, but found no incriminating evidence.
Our correspondent was informed that Mr. Adoke’s wife left the residence a few hours before the EFCC operatives arrived for their investigation.
Sources also revealed that the former Attorney General is rarely at his Kano residence, which is usually guarded by watchmen.
All efforts to contact the media officer of the EFCC in Kano zone, Idris Nadabo, proved abortive.
