Governor Amosun Denies EFCC Raid

Ogun State​ Governor​, Ibikunle Amosun, ​has denied that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) raided his Lagos home.
There have been reports in the social media​” that the anti-graft agency raided the Governor’s residence in Lagos and recovered huge sums of money.
But in a statement by the State’s Commissioner for Information, Dayo Adeneye, said the malicious allegations should be ignored.
He said the allegation was in the ​”​series of false accusations against the person of Governor Amosun all in an attempt to pull him down politically.​”​
He stated further: “Those behind the malicious attacks are doing so to heat up the polity ahead of the 2019 general elections.
​”​They are doing it on behalf of their paymasters for cheap political motives. It has become a routine of one week one accusation.
“Neither the EFCC nor any security agency has visited the Governor’s residence”, he said.
Adeneye ​noted that there had been consistent falsehood against the Governor since 2011.
​”​These false reports should be disregarded and ignored in their entirety as they are only meant to score cheap political points.
​”​However, the Governor would like it to be known, that he will not hesitate to take requisite legal action against any medium that allows itself to be used as the purveyor of any such manifestly false and misleading information,”​ he added.
