The EFCC allegedly acted on an intelligence it received that stolen money and prop­erty worth millions of naira were stored in the warehouse on Nnamdi Azikiwe Street, Kaduna.
According to agency re­port, a team of EFCC op­eratives from the Kano were deployed in the area to inves­tigate the allegations.
The operatives allegedly met two persons who were described as custodians of
the property.
Sources said that they were presented with a search warrant and when the operatives entered the warehouse they found 17 brand new cars, shuttle buses and Sport Utility Ve­hicles (SUVs).
