Security operatives on Wednesday raided the residence of Namadi Sambo, a former Vice President in Kaduna State.
The operatives were from the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police.
Witnesses said the operatives blocked the major road leading to the Sambo’s residence for two hours to wade off motorists and other passersby plying the road, while others were said to have gone into the residence apparently for searching.
Although it was unclear if they carted away some money, the operatives were said to have moved out of the residence in a convoy.
Attempts by journalists to ask questions were resisted by the operatives who threatened to shoot anybody who come closer to the house.
Sambo who was the vice president during Goodlukck Jonathan administration has been off the public radar since he left office in May 2015.
