The Gombe APC senator is the chair of Senate’s appropriation committee.
He was said to have been in the National Assembly working on the 2017 budget proposal while the raid lasted.
“The high number of gun wielding officers arrived the House some minutes after 4 p.m., and said they had a warrant to search the house,” Premium Times quoted an aide of the former governor.
