Speaking while responding to a media report that Economic and Financial Crime Commission  searched the home of Paul Boroh, the former head of the Presidential Amnesty Programme for ex Niger Delta militants, a spokesman for the EFCC confirmed the raid, but not the supposed amounts recovered.

Wilson Uwujaren, in an interview with PREMIUM Times, said that “I am not aware of such discoveries,” making reference to reports that $9 million was recovered as a result of an early Tuesday morning raid by the EFCC and the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) on Boroh’s Abuja residence.

Retired Brigadier General Boroh, who had headed the Amnesty Programme for three years, was fired from his post a week ago by the President on corruption related charges. Boroh was immediately replaced with foreign policy expert, Charles Dokubo.

The EFCC spokesman confirmed report of the early morning (3:00 AM) raid at Gwarimpa Estate in Abuja, though he gave no indication about how much was discovered in the search.

Boroh’s wife, Mrs. Ibinye Boroh at a press briefing with family lawyer Olusola Oke, has since denied the claims of $9 million recovered from their home.

“The publication by a section of the press stating the contrary is fabricated, false in its entirety, malicious and calculated to mislead the public,” she said, confirming the raid, but not the outcome.

Boroh has been in the custody of the EFCC since Monday, it is reported.

Family lawyer, Oke refuting details of the reports as “disparaging” and “fallacious”, asked for a retraction within 48 hours.
