Security agents, yesterday raided the Alimi Road, Kaduna residence of former Vice President, Namadi Sambo.
A witness told Daily Sun security agents arrived the residence in a bus, two Hilux vans and a bullion van, and raided the house for two hours.
“They came with heavily armed security personnel for two hours, between 3:00pm and 5:00pm,” the source said.
When Daily Sun got to the Alimi residence of the former number two citizen, security personnel in bullet-proof vests threatened to shoot journalists if they got closer to the house.
Another witness said the team had raided the house of the former VP on several occasions.
“We are not sure whether this time, they found something in the house. The presence of the bullion van raised our suspicion.”
Also when contacted, a source close to Sambo said the security agencies had raided the house for the fifth time and insisted nothing was found.
“I want to assure you that, this time, again, nothing would be found because the former VP is not a corrupt person. He served this country in several capacities and has never been found wanting,” the source added.
