Tension ensued on Sunday night as operatives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) conducted a search operation at the residence of Adamu Abdullahi, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), few hours after his resignation from his position, allegedly under intense pressure from the president and other prominent members of the ruling party.

The EFCC agents arrived at around 8:00 p.m. at Adamu’s residence, located on Ali Akilu Crescent, near the Aso Rock Presidential Villa. However, they faced resistance from police orderlies assigned to the politician, according to reliable sources, including one of the officers involved.

A standoff quickly unfolded as the police officers refused entry to the premises, citing the time, which was past 6:00 p.m. They claimed it was too late for any search operation, even after being presented with a search warrant duly signed by a judge. The exact details of the warrant were not immediately clear, but it was suspected that it might be related to ongoing corruption allegations against Adamu.”

Our sources said the police officers insisted that no one could enter the house after 6:00 p.m., regardless of the warrant,” said one anonymous source familiar with the operation. The situation escalated as the officers, arriving in four trucks, attempted to resolve the matter for several hours without success.

Despite the intensity of the standoff, no casualties were reported.As of the early hours of Monday and the beginning of the business day, spokespeople for the police and the EFCC were not available for comment on the incident.

Further updates on the situation are awaited as investigations into the matter may still be ongoing.
