A top aide of the former governor, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed that EFCC operatives raided Ambode’s home.
He revealed that Ambode was not in the country and the home had been raided in his absence.
The commission’s spokesman, Mr Tony Orilade, told The PUNCH that the operatives were in Ambode’s house as part of investigations.
He said the visit was not a raid but “We are there for ongoing investigation.”
The anti-graft agency had in a recent statement by Orilade announced the freezing of three banks accounts linked to Ambode which were allegedly used in the diversion of N9.9bn in September 2018.
