The police on Friday carried out a raid on the official guest house of
the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, located on Ganjes Street,
This is coming barely after Ekweremadu raised the alarm over alleged
plans by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to raid
his houses in either Abuja or Enugu and plant incriminating
substances. The EFCC had in a response to him at that time, asked him
not to lose sleep over the reports if he had nothing to hide.
Reacting to the incident, former aviation minister, Femi Fani Kayode,
who claimed that Ekweremadu personally confirmed the incident to him,
described it as shameful and shocking and accused the government of
attempting to silence those in the opposition.
“The Federal Government is trying to foster and engender an atmosphere
of fear and terror and this will not work because we refuse to be
intimidated,” he said, in a statement. ELANZANEWS.M
