The cops discovered that the group that attacked the residence was not a security squad.
The guys were alleged to be led by Lawrence Ajojo, a phoney Chief Superintendent of Police who admitted to being hired as a consultant by Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN.

Frank Mba, a spokesman for the Force Criminal Investigation Department in Garki, Abuja, said the individuals involved in the criminal actions came from various professional backgrounds.
Ajojo told journalists that he was not a police officer and that he worked for the AGF as a consultant.
“I am not a Nigerian police officer; I am a consultant for the AGF; he did not send us to Mrs Odili’s house,” he explained.
On the basis of a reported tip from a whistleblower, Aliyu Umar, who claimed to have noticed suspicious activity at the Supreme Court Justice’s apartment, a contingent of security officers invaded Odili’s Maitama residence.
On October 29, 2021, security agents raided Odili’s residence after Chief Magistrate Emmanuel Iyanna approved a search warrant by a body known as the Joint Panel Recovery unit in the Ministry of Justice, but they were reportedly rebuffed.
The injunction was eventually reversed by the magistrate, who claimed he had been mislead.
The incident aroused anger, with the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, clearing his office of complicity.
The raid was also unknown to the police leadership, who stated that they were unaware of it.
