According to the Premium Times reports that the spokesperson of the anti-graft agency, Tony Orilade, confirmed that Ambode is under a corruption probe.

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 Ambode in office, and detectives have been busy trying to untangle all webs around the alleged corruption. It was gathered that about two weeks ago, multiple bank accounts holding billions and linked to Ambode were frozen as part of the probe. Ambode, however, denied links to both the accounts and any allegations of corruption while in office.
