N9.9bn Fraud Allegations: I Am Not Involved – AMBODE


The former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Friday (today) said he knew nothing about the N9.9bn fraud reportedly discovered by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

According to a statement issued by Ambode's media aide, Habib Haruna, the former governor explained that none of his accounts contained N9.9bn, let alone being frozen by the anti-graft agency.

Ambode said, “Those accounts were opened in the course of normal operations by the Lagos State Government for its administrative purposes and not for the former governor’s personal transactions as was being wrongly insinuated and have been operated to ensure smooth operations of government activities by previous and present administrations. 

“The former governor was not and will never be involved in any unauthorized use of government property and resources.

“We strongly believe that after four demanding years as Chief Executive of Lagos State, Mr. Ambode is entitled to some deserved rest with his family and loved ones without the unwarranted attacks on his well-earned reputation.”
