Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) swooped on the residence of Mohammed Adoke, former attorney-general of the federation, in Kano on Tuesday but found nothing, sources have told TheCable.


The anti-graft agency has reported heavy hauls of suspected proceeds of crime in recent times following tip-offs from members of the public.

Some of the discoveries were made at residences associated with former national security adviser, Sarki Mukhtar, and Andrew Yakubu, former NNPC GMD.

However, raids on the residences of Adoke have not yielded any evidence so far.


The Kano residence, which is at Alu Avenue, was ransacked by the EFCC operatives on Tuesday between noon and 2pm.

They searched rooms, ceiling and water tanks but sources said nothing incriminating was found.

The wife of the former minister left the residence a few hours before the EFCC operatives arrived, TheCable learnt.


Efforts to reach the media officer of the EFCC in Kano zone, Idris Nadabo, proved abortive.

After conducting a thorough search of the house, the operatives asked the security guard to sign a document confirming that no damage was done to the house, TheCable gathered.

Adoke’s residence at TheHague, the Nerthelands, was searched earlier in the year, but only $50 and €60 in coins were found.

Adoke is currently in court challenging moves by EFCC to arrest him over the $1.2 billion Malabu Oil affair in which officials of the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan allegedly received bribes.
