ICPC, SARS raid Namadi Sambo’s Kaduna residence

Operatives of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) on Wednesday raided the Kaduna residence of Namadi Sambo, former Vice President.

The road leading to Sambo’s house was cordoned off for the two hours that the operation lasted.



    Details of the incident were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report.

    The security operatives were quite hostile, threatening to shoot anybody who came close to the house.

    Sambo has remained largely anonymous since the 2015 general election, when the presidential ticket he held with Goodluck Jonathan was not renewed at the polls.

    His most recent public outings were at the wedding of Ibrahim Babangida’s daughter in Minna, and his visit to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in May.
