“What we fight is economic and financial crimes. Whatever allegations we have should be centred on economic and financial crimes,” he said.

The former governor became the second notable personality to be raided this year by EFCC after his tenure expired.

A similar raid was conducted on the properties of former governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo.
