The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that it raided a residence of Kashim Shettima, governor of Borno state.

Reports had earlier surfaced on social media that operatives of the anti-graft agency as well as those of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) were raiding Shettima’s residence.

The reports suggested that billions of dollars were on Sunday found in the residence of the governor.

Reacting, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesperson, told journalists that the commission was not aware of any raid on the governor’s residence let alone “recovering a large cache of dollars”.

“We are not aware of anything like that,” he said.

There has been no official word on the matter from the ICPC.

The governor in question is not known to have made any such claims, whether personally or through a spokesperson.
