ICPC Raids Ex Vice President Sambo’s Home In Kaduna
Operatives from the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), on Wednesday stormed the Kaduna residence of the former Vice President, Namadi Sambo.
The operatives who arrived the residence at about 3p.m. with a court order reportedly blocked the major road leading to the residence to wade off motorists and other passersby plying the road while other operatives were said to have gone to search the house.
A resident of the area who craved for anonymity, said that when they(ICPC) came into the residence, they threatened to shoot anybody that move around the house.
“On arrival, they warned that anybody that moves would be shot.
“They came at about 3p.m and left at about some minutes to 5p.m.,” he said.
The spokesman of the former Vice President, Mallam Umar Sani, in a telephone interview, said the ICPC officials came with a court order to search the place.
Sani said it was not the first time the house was being searched.
“This is not the first time they are searching the house. They have been coming to search the house on several occasions.
“Today, they came with a court order and gave a copy to the CSO in the house.
After they finished the search, they wrote at the back page of the court order that they gave to the CSO that they didn’t find anything and they left.
“So we are not surprised because it has now become a routine activity,” Sani said.
