Some unidentified gunmen on Saturday raided the home of Bashir Adoke, younger brother of former attorney-general of the federation, Mohammed Adoke.
The house is located at Nagazi, Okehi local government area of Kogi state. The gunmen reportedly said they were looking for hidden dollars.
“They broke doors and started shouting where is the money kept in this house? They were desperate, they upturned the furniture and ransacked every part of the building,” the relative said.
“Getting frustrated, they vandalised everything in the house because they could not get any cash.
“When the search for cash was fruitless, they beat AbdulGaniyu to a pulp and injured him.”
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had in April raided the Kano residence of the former AGF but nothing was found.
