UNPERTURBED Former Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, says the commission given the responsibility to fight against corruption in Nigeria has the right to conduct search on his properties, but according to him, with due process.
Ambode made this statement while confirming reports that operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission – EFCC, conducted search on his Epe home and Ikoyi, Lagos residences.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Habib Aruna on Tuesday, the former Governor said he was ready and willing to comply with EFCC’s requests, if the anti-graft agency got in touch with him.
“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,’’ part of the statement said.
Ambode, who confirmed that the search on the two residences were conducted without any incident, reassured his followers that there was no cause for alarm, while pleading with them to remain calm and law-abiding.
