According to information, the operatives of EFCC on Sunday night stormed Adamu’s residence to execute a search warrant.

The operatives arrived at Adamu’s residence on Ali Akilu Crescent, Ask Rock presidential Villa Abuja, at about 8:00 pm, and immediately met the men of Nigeria police officers attached to the politician.

The Federal Government has decided to sell three ageing aircraft from the presidential fleet to reduce maintenance costs.

The aircraft, including a Boeing 737 BBJ, Gulfstream, and Falcon 7x, will be sold through a US-based airline marketer, JetHQ. The sale is expected to generate funds for the purchase of new aircraft.

Meanwhile, the presidential fleet has come under scrutiny due to its poor condition, with at least half of the aircraft deemed unserviceable or failing.
