Ojo added that he was never involved in any fraud nor his house raided by the anti-graft agency during their visit to Epe.

It would be recalled that the anti-graft agency had been investigating the administration of the former governor over alleged N9.9 billion fraud which led to freezing three accounts owned by the State Government.

The former Chief of Staff, in a statement made available to Vanguard by his Media aide, Cornelius Kayode, stressed that the house raided by the agency in Epe did not belong to him.

He maintained that the house raided by the EFCC operatives belongs to the former Personal Assistant to Ambode, Mr. Bunmi  Ariyo.

According to him, my boss, Mr. Olakunle Ojo, did not have any personal house in Epe while in office and after leaving office.

“The former Chief of Staff did not build any house in Epe as claimed. The House raided by EFCC belongs to Bunmi Ariyo who was the former governor’s Personal Assistance,” he added.

Ojo, however, urged the public to disregard the claim that his house was among buildings raided by the anti-corruption agency.(NAN)
