Security operatives believed to be from the police headquarters, on Thursday evening raided the Abuja home of Danjuma Goje, a former governor of Gombe State.
It was gathered that at least 12 vehicles, including about eight police vans were stationed outside the building and at least 25 mobile police officers were sighted outside the building, located on Haile Selassie Street, Asoroko.
About half a dozen detectives were also seen standing outside, with even more likely to be inside.
A security source said the operatives were from the Monitoring Unit of the Inspector General of Police, and were on a mission to recover funds believed to be hidden in the building.
A whistle-blower is believed to have provided that information to the police. The police however, is yet to comment on the operation.
Mr. Goje, a serving senator, is currently being prosecuted for alleged corruption while he was the Governor of Gombe State.
