However, as at Saturday, the palatial and tastefully furnished building which was earlier taken over by the anti-graft agency, still had some occupants, it was observed.

The occupants, mainly youths, attacked The Nation correspondent in Yenagoa with stones when he attempted to take pictures of the building.

The hard material which missed the journalist by the whiskers however damaged a part of his vehicle.

Three officials of the anti-graft agency accompanied by some mobile policemen had earlier stormed the property located on Azikoro Road, before inscribing on the fence, , “ Property under EFCC investigation, keep off.”
