The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied raiding the home of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It was gathered that reports had emerged earlier claiming that operatives of the anti-graft agency had raided the home of Tinubu and recovered N400 billion.
But in a swift denial in a statement on Sunday, the EFCC described the report as false news.

“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.”
