The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) have refuted claims that the Department of State Services (DSS) raided their offices to seize incriminating documents related to Tinubu and his associates.
In response to an online report, the CCB stated that the allegations were misleading and that no raid or search for incriminating documents took place at its offices. The CCB emphasized that the report was based on false information and aimed to misinform and mislead the public.
The CCB further clarified that no directive had been received from the federal government to cover up any matter concerning the president and his associates since the government assumed office on May 29, 2023. The bureau assured the Nigerian people that it would continue to fulfill its anti-corruption mandate as outlined in the constitution.
Similarly, the ICPC dismissed similar claims of a raid by the DSS on its office. Both agencies urged the public to disregard the reports as fake news lacking any truth or evidence.
These statements from the CCB and the ICPC serve to clarify the situation and counter the false allegations of a raid by the DSS. The agencies reaffirm their commitment to combating corruption and maintaining transparency in their operations.
