Immediate-past governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is yet to directly communicate with him on the investigation of his administration or any subject matter.
Ambode said this while speaking after officials of the anti-graft agency raided his houses in Epe and Parkview, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The EFCC operatives searched his Parkview residence but met stiff opposition by kinsmen and neighbours in Epe.
The ex-governor, in a statement by his media aide, Mr Habib Aruna, said while the EFCC had not directly communicated with him, he is “ready and willing to respond” whenever the anti-graft agency does.
Aruna said, “This morning, operatives of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission visited the Epe home and Parkview, Ikoyi, residence of Mr Akinwunmi Ambode with warrants to conduct a search.
“These searches were carried out extensively and at the end of the exercise, the operatives left without any incident.
“The former governor reiterates that the EFCC has till date not had any direct communication with him on any subject matter whatsoever and if or when it occurs, he is ready and willing to respond.
“The former governor urges his supporters to stay calm and law-abiding as there is no cause for alarm.”
