Heavily armed security operatives yesterday raided the residence of a former vice president, Namadi Sambo, in Kaduna.
The operatives are believed to have come from the State Security Service, SSS, and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC, Premium Times reports.
An ICPC operative in the North-West zonal office of the agency in Kaduna, confirmed the raid to Premium Times, the paper says.
“Yes, we carried out a raid of the former Vice President Sambo’s house around 3:00pm today (Wednesday) with other agencies,” the operative said but declined to give further details because he has no official permission to speak to journalists.
“You can contact our headquarters in Abuja for details,” he added.
