EFCC Seals Abuja House Of Former CDS, Alex Badeh

Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday, January 13, sealed off
the Abuja house of former Chief of Defence Staff (CDS)
during President Jonathan’s administration, Air Chief
Marshal Alex Sabundu Badeh located at No 19 Kumasi
Crescent, Wuse II.
The house allegedly belonging to the former CDS is being
occupied by his son, Tony Badeh and family. Tony Badeh who is
a pilot, and family were already out of the country as at the time
the anti-graft agency stormed the house, a source who prefers to
be anonymous disclosed to Naij.com in Abuja.
The source also told our correspondent that the son of the former
CDS, Tony Badeh had fore-knowledge of EFCC’s visit and had to
quickly travel to South Africa with his family yesterday.
Speaking on what transpired, Badeh’s gateman, Mr Timothy in a
discussion with other domestic staff said there was little he could
do. A visibly sad Timothy also said he had to call his boss, Mr
Tony Badeh and who then instructed him not to resist the EFCC
officials or deny them entry into the house.
” When they came here I did not resist them. I only called my
Oga who told me to allow them,” a sad Timothy disclosed.
One of the neighbours who craved for anonymity also disclosed
to Naij.com that security officials have been monitoring the house
for about 2 weeks.
“They have been coming here for a while. I mean the SSS and
police people. The last time they (EFCC) came we learnt that they
(the Badehs) didn’t receive the letter from them”
This statement was however corroborated by a resident in the
area who simply gave his name as Mohammed. Mr Mohammed
told our correspondent that the EFCC and some security
operatives had earlier stormed the house to seize close to 15 new
exotic cars parked in the compound before sealing it off.
“The EFCC before sealing the house drove out close to 15 fine fine
cars to unknown locations. It was when I knew that something is
not going on well.”
Meanwhile, efforts to reach the EFCC spokesperson as at the time
of filling this report proved abortive.
Meanwhile, Adeyanju Deji, the Peoples Democratic Party’s director
of new media, has narrated what transpired when he visited Olisa
Metuh, the PDP’s spokesperson, who was arrested by the
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last week
.
In a series of tweets Deji stated that even though Metuh looked
grey and tired, he said that he was strong and nobody would
break him.
