EFCC Raids Jonathan Cousin’s Premises In Bayelsa

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission, Thursday, swooped on the facilities
being developed by Robert Azibaola, ex-President
Goodluck Jonathan’s cousin, in Otakeme, Bayelsa
State. Robert-Azibaola Although no reason was given for the raid, it was
learnt that the company premises was searched by
the operatives on the suspicion they would
recover some hidden cash. An official of the company, who witnessed the
raid, lamented that some containers, machines and
buildings were damaged in the process of finding
cash. “At about 1500 hours today, 13th April 2017, EFCC
operatives invaded KAKATAR premises in Otakeme
in Bayelsa State and vandalise containers,
equipment and machines and damaged our
buildings in the process,” a spokesman for the
company, Austin Ekeinde said in a mail to Vanguard. “KAKATAR premises in Otakeme houses our
construction equipment, machines and residential
buildings and it not for the storage of cash or any
other material, “ Ekeinde added. The raid comes on the heels of similar ones in
Lagos, Kano and Kaduna by the anti-graft
agency’s operatives in search of cash suspected to
have been stashed away by powerful and
influential Nigerians, yet to come forward to claim
the funds. It will be recalled that a raid on a private apartment
in Ikoyi Lagos yesterday, yielded over N15 billion
cash in different currencies.
