By Soni Daniel, Northern Region Editor
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission,
Monday, raided the Abuja office of the former
Vice President, Arc. Namadi Sambo and seized
$50,000 found in his safe.
The raid was carried out, Weekend, on the
building which houses a top European High
Commission’s Visa Processing Centre opposite
the National Defence College, Abuja.

A source close to the operation confirmed to
Vanguard on Monday that the operatives broke
into the Safe kept by the former vice president
and removed whatever valuable they found,
including top branded wrist watches, assets
declaration forms, and list of landed property.
The raid, it was learnt followed the discovery that
one of Sambo’s aide, known as Daboh, was
found to have collected the sum of N25 million
from the embattled National Publicity Secretary
of the PDP, Olisah Metuh, as part of the sum he
got from the former NSA, Dasuki Sambo.
Although Daboh was arrested on January 11 by
the EFCC and later released after taking
statement from him, the operatives swooped on
the ex-VP’s office on Saturday with the hope of
extracting ‘incriminating evidence’.
The raid took place a few days after Sambo had
moved some vital documents from his residence
to the office in the Central Business District, in
many bags, known as “Ghana-Must-Go, which
were thought to contain foreign currency.
