Chidi Samuel || The investigation into the huge sums of money ceased by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) at the Osborne towers in Ikoyi, Lagos, last week continued Tuesday with the search of the flats occupied by Ex-Governor Peter Obi, Former PDP Chairman Adamu Mu’azu and TV presenter Mo Abudu.

However, sources within the EFCC said that all the flats in the building were searched because the agency believed that more cash could be found in the building.

The search was also confirmed by media aid to Mr. Peter Obi, Val Obienyem who said that all the flats in the building were searched and that Mr. Obi’s home is in Onitsha, Anambra State while the flat at Osborne Towers was for rental purposes.

Part of Obienyem’s statement read, “The media aide to former Governor Mr. Peter Obi has confirmed the search by the EFCC of Flat 1, occupied by the former governor in the building where the agency discovered large sums of money.

“The apartment was rented by the wife of the former governor and it is where Mr. Obi usually stays anytime he is in Lagos.

“Even though Mr. and Mrs. Obi had travelled to the USA and the UK for speaking engagements when we relayed the message of the search to him, he quickly sent the keys to the four-bedroom apartment to the EFCC via courier.

“He even left instructions that we should allow them to also search his Onitsha residence should there be a need for that. After the thorough search, nothing was found in the apartment.”
