The agency said, “Please disregard online reports claiming the EFCC raided the Abuja home of Senator Danjuma Goje.

“The report is FALSE as the Commission was not a part of any such activity.”

A police source has however confirmed that some of its officers raided the residence.

At least 25 mobile police officers were sighted outside the building, located on Haile Selassie Street, Asokoro.

A security source said the operatives were from the Monitoring Unit of the Inspector General of Police, and were on a mission to recover funds believed to be hidden in the building.
