At around 5 p.m. on Friday, the Supreme Court Judge’s home on lmo Rivers Street in Maitama was raided by fully armed plain-clothed security men for undisclosed reasons.
Soldiers and officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) identified themselves as members of a joint task force, according to the security men.
Security operatives guarding the house were said to have objected to the house being taken over without a court order because they insisted on staying around the house, waiting for the occupants to surrender so they could take over.
However, according to this online news outlet, Justice Odili has not been seen or made a public statement since the alleged invasion of her home.
Meanwhile, Ejes Gist News previously reported that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied reports that its operatives raided Justice Mary Odili’s Abuja home.
Anti-graft operatives are said to have stormed Justice Odili’s home in Abuja’s Maitama neighbourhood to carry out a search warrant as part of investigations into her husband, Peter Odili, who served as Governor of Rivers State from 1999 to 2007.
In a statement on its official Facebook page, the EFCC, however, stated that its operatives did not carry out “any such operation as claimed by the media.”
‘EFCC Did Not Carry Out Any Operation in Justice Odili’s Home,’ read the statement.
“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to claims in a section of the media that EFCC operatives stormed the Maitama, Abuja home of a Supreme Court Judge, Justice Mary Odili, purportedly to execute a search today, October 29, 2021,” it read.
“By issuing this statement, the Commission wishes to inform the public that the report is false, as it did not carry out any operation at Justice Odili’s residence.
“If there was such an operation as the media claims, it was not conducted by the EFCC. “The Commission strongly advises the public to disregard the report,” the EFCC said.
