Former Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mohammed Bello Adoke, has said he was confident that at the appropriate time, all those behind his recent travails will be exposed.
The former AGF was reacting to the recent search conducted on his country home at Okene by 12 policemen who obtained a search warrant from the Gudu District of the FCT High Court to that effect.
He said during the search, the policemen ransacked his house including Boys Quarters, over head and underground water and septic tanks obviously looking foreign currency and “unspecified documents” but found none.
“At the end of almost two hours search, no incriminating thing was found in the house and a report to that effect was duly prepared and witnessed by those who were present including my junior brother, Abdullahi Adoke, the former AGF said in a statement made available to DAILY ASSET.
He regretted that it would be the fourth time his houses would be searched adding, similar searches had earlier taken place at his Kano house, his student home in Netherlands and his junior brother’s house in Okene.
“I am utterly surprised that at the end of my service, agencies of the state have chosen to align with those with personal grudges and scores to settle with me for refusing to allow my office to be used in their fight to gain ownership and control of OPL 245 granted Malabu Oil and Gas Limited”, he lamented.
He said he was convinced that the searches were an orchestrated plan to “harass, intimidate and generally prevent me from pursuing my suit against the Federal Government I served diligently as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice for five years and two months”.
