Heavily armed security operatives from various arms of the security services led by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission on Wednesday stormed the Kaduna residence of former Vice President, Namadi Sambo in Kaduna State.
The operation which lasted several hours saw the operatives cordoning off the No 1Alimi road residence of the former number 2 man while some of the operatives went into the residence ostensibly to carry out a search.
The operatives came in two vehicles, a Coaster Bus and Toyota Hilux Van while a third vehicle, a Toyota Corolla car was used to block the entrance to the street where the house is located. An eye witness, a residence of the area told journalists that the operatives were aggressive as they threatened to shoot any unauthorized person that got close to the residence.
“They came at about 3.00pm and left at about some minutes to 5:00pm. As they came they warned that anybody that moves would be shot,” the resident said. It was further gathered that the operatives came in with equipment, ostensibly to overcome any challenge they may face.
