A video clip has emerged showing the moment operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) search of ex-Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode’s country home in Epe was aborted by residences who blocked and haul abuses on the operatives.
In the short video, people were seen surrounding a white pickup van and a minibus of the operatives parked in front of Ambode ’s residence. Amidst the chaos, some of the EFCC operatives attempt to open their vehicles without success.
Residents can be heard shouting in Yoruba, “Burst their tyres” while others were hauling abuses “thieves” on the operatives in their local dialect.
As the commotion continues, the operatives were forced to drive away, with the armed officers shooting intermittently into the air. The back windshield of the bus appeared to have been shattered.
As at the time of filing this news, no injury has been confirmed.
The anti- graft agency has disclosed to us that Ambode is among some of the former governors currently under investigation.
