The former governor was “picked up at his Abuja home, at No. 3, Niger Street, Maitama” by the EFCC officials who stormed the former governor’s home at about 10.00 am. According to the statement signed by EFCC’s Acting Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, the embattled governor was discovered in the house where he was “hiding in a dingy corner in the upper chamber of his expansive mansion.”
“On arrival at the facility at about 10.00 am, the Commission’s operatives were told that the ex-governor was not in town but they insisted on conducting a search on the house having obtained a warrant from the court.”
“During the search, vital documents were obtained. Ironically, the ex-governor who was said to be out of town was later found hiding in a dingy corner in the upper chamber of his expansive mansion” the statement claimed. He was immediately whisked away and is currently being interrogated at the Abuja headquarters of the anti- graft agency.
According to EFCC, Mr Sylva is “being grilled in connection with fresh evidence linking him with a bouquet of fraudulent transactions that borders on money laundering. Part of the new evidence includes a number of eye-popping real estate acquisitions in Abuja.”
