Security operatives who stormed the Abuja residence of Danjuma Goje, the senator representing Gombe central, found cash in sums of $19,000 and 4,000 Saudi riyals.
They also found cash of 18 million Nigerian Naira.
Goje, who was governor of Gombe from 2003-2011, was at the national assembly office working on the 2017 budget when federal police stormed his residence with over 40 officers.
“Our men were there for between four and five hours and they carried out a thorough search,” the source told The Cable.
Recall that EFCC recently recovered about N15billion in a flat in Ikoyi, Lagos.
