According to daily news reports that Babalele, who is also finance director of Atiku’s group of companies was arrested at his Maitama residence.

It was gathered that the EFCC agents numbering about two dozen came in 2 regular vehicles, an 18-seater Toyota bus (registration Abuja CS 522 RSH) and a Hilux van.

They stormed Babalele’s Maitama residence at 8:30 am but were prevented from gaining access into the house until his lawyers arrived.

“They came with a search warrant to search the house and office of Babalele and found nothing incriminating.

“They then proceeded to his office at Oakland Centre in Maitama and found nothing incriminating there. However, they took away some documents of landed property.

“Not done, the EFCC officials stormed his Wuse residence where they again found nothing incriminating after the search.

“Afterwards, Babalele was taken away to the EFCC office in Wuse to make a statement alongside Mr Lawan Ayuba,” notes Paul Ibe, Media Adviser to Atiku.

A top official of the EFCC declined to comment on the arrest. Also, the spokesperson of the commission did not respond to numerous phone calls and the message Daily Trust sent to him on Saturday.

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the report with a post via Twitter ”
