EFCC Raids Dangote Group Headquarters In Lagos

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday raided the headquarters of Dangote Group of Companies in Lagos State.

The operatives, it was gathered, arrived around 3 pm and began a search.

Spokesperson of the EFCC Dele Oyewale confirmed the presence of the anti-graft operatives at the location.

Mr Oyewale declined revealing their mission.

“I can confirm that our men are there, but I can’t comment on the reason for their presence there,” Oyewale told PUNCH.

The newspaper quoted a source who said anonymously that the EFCC is probing the foreign exchange allocations made to about 52 companies, including Dangote Plc, during the tenure of the embattled ex-governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele.

The source said the anti-graft agency discovered that the allocations were not approved by former President Muhammadu Buhari.
