Immediate past governor of Lagos State is in the eye of the storm; just as he stepped out of the Alausa Government House, he is been trailed by the anti-graft agencies for offences that are linked to misappropriation of public funds.

Information from PREMIUM TIMES confirms that EFCC spokesperson, Tony Orilade, that Mr Ambode is under a corruption probe, a few months after he left office.

The residence of Mr Ambode in his hometown of Epe was being searched as of 9:35 a.m. (Tuesday, Morning) when Mr Orilade confirmed the development.

The residence of the former governor’s chief of staff in the same Epe neighbourhood was also being searched.

Billions of naira were allegedly misappropriated in the four years of Mr Ambode in office, and detectives have been busy trying to untangle all webs around the alledged corruption.

About two weeks ago, multiple bank accounts holding billions and linked to Mr Ambode were frozen as part of the probe.

Mr Ambode denied links to both the accounts and any allegations of corruption while in office. Recall that the commission last three weeks ago froze three bank accounts containing the total sum of N9.9bn linked to the immediate past Governor of Lagos State.
