The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied raiding the home of the presidential flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It also said it did not retrieve any N400 billion either from the candidate or his residence.
It described a trending report in social media as fake news.
The commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren made the clarifications in a statement.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report circulating in the social media, claiming that operatives of the Commission raided the home of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the forthcoming presidential elections and recovered a humongous sum of N400billion.
“The Commission wishes to state that no such operation was carried out by the EFCC. The public is enjoined to disregard the report as fake news.”
