Jul 17, 2023

There was anxiety on Sunday night when operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed the home of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adamu Abdullahi, to execute a search warrant.

It was gathered that the APC National chairman had allegedly resigned from his position following pressure from top members of the ruling party.

It was gathered that EFCC agents arrived around 8:00 p.m. at Adamu’s house on Ali Akilu Crescent, by Aso Rock Presidential Villa, and immediately met resistance from police orderlies attached to the politician, according to two sources familiar, including one of the officers involved.

According to Peoples Gazette, sources disclosed that a standoff immediately ensued after the police officers said no one would be permitted to enter the premises because it was already past 6:00 p.m. The officers insisted, despite being shown a warrant duly signed by a judge.

The content of the warrant was not immediately clear, but Mr Adamu had faced corruption allegations whose probe might still be active.

“The police officers said no one can enter the house because it was already past 6:00 p.m. and already late for any search operation,” one of our sources said under anonymity to discuss the operation.

He added: “They said they won’t allow anyone inside even if they go back to bring the judge that signed the warrant.”

The officers, who sources said arrived in four trucks, spent hours trying unsuccessfully to resolve the matter.
