Abuja, (An24) – Officers of the Nigerian Police Force have reportedly hijacked documents that would have facilitated the passage of the 2017 budget during a raid on Senator Danjuma Goje’s residence.
The Police had allegedly raided the residence of the Senator on April 20, 2017.
Documents and laptops were reportedly carted away in the raid that lasted for some hours.
Senator Goje at the plenary on Wednesday, lamented on how the officers traumatised his family members.
He added that many files that are important to early passage of the 2017 Budget were taken away by the Police during the operation.
“The Police searched my house for 4 hours,”
“They left me, my family members and well-wishers traumatized and frightened
“At the end of the raid, they left with N18 million; $19,000; 4000 Saudi riyal. The police also left with my laptop, 18 files from my office.
“The Police truncated work on 2017 budget by the invasion of my house. Nigerians should therefore blame the Police for the delayed passage of the 2017 budget.
“As I speak, have had no official contact with the police. I don’t know if the Police are now working on the budget. They have hijacked the budget.
“We will manage to pass this budget but don’t blame us if it is delayed,” Senator Goje said.
