Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday raided the residence of the immediate past Comptroller-General of Customs, Abdullahi Dikko, in Abuja. Anti-graft personnel arrived at the house located at 6, Ahmed Musa Crescent, Jabi, at about 7 a.m., the News Agency of Nigeria is reporting.

Mr. Dikko was not at home at the time of raid. NAN reports that the mission of the personnel was not disclosed to any member of the family who were in the house. Armed officials of EFCC were still around the property by Friday noon, NAN says.

The agency quoted an armed police at the house as saying that they were deployed to ensure there was no breakdown of law and order.

Mohammed Usman, a relative to the former Customs boss, said the EFCC operatives arrived at the residence at about 7 a.m. He says;

"A team of about seven operatives of the EFCC in company with some armed policemen arrived at the residence at about 7am and have been in the house for the past five hours.

"From the information available to me, no search warrant was presented before the commencement of the search.

"As I speak to you, they are currently in my uncle's bedroom carrying out the search in his absence," he said.

Mr. Usman faulted the search on the ground that the operation was being carried out in the absence of the former comptroller-general.

"The only people in the house at the commencement of this search and even till now are his children who are below the ages of 18," he said.

When contacted, Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC Spokesman said that he had not been informed of the search on the former comptroller -general's residence.
