The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, has described as inaccurate reports that the commission raided a property allegedly belonging to former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai.

This is contained in a statement by the Spokesperson for the ICPC, Azuka Ogugua, on Friday.

“The attention of the commission has been drawn to some inaccurate and concocted reports in the media about the seizure of multibillion-naira cash, dollars, Rolex watches stockpiled in an Abuja property.

“The commission wishes to state that ICPC operatives raided a property in Wuse II of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja on June 16, in suspicion of money laundering.
