The police in Abuja on Friday carried out a search on the Maitama, Abuja official guest house of the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
Special Adviser to the Deputy President of the Senate, Uche Anichukwu who confirmed the development said that neither the senator nor any of his aides was informed before the search.
He said only the steward was present when the policemen who claimed to be from the Force Headquarters arrived at the guest house.
Anichukwu said nothing was found from the search. The search happened about two weeks after Senator Ekweremadu alleged plans by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC to raid him in either Abuja or Enugu.
The EFCC in response at that time said that he needed not fear if he had nothing to hide.
