The DSS operatives on arriving at the premises, Saturday, reportedly quizzed Chiemeka and his brother, demanding to know where huge cash were hidden in the house.


They were said to have told the Orjis that they had information that they are in the know about the movement of cash into the house and where it is stored.
The duo reportedly denied knowledge of the said funds.

They were then taken to the headquarters of the EFCC in Abuja, where they were grilled for several hours.

Though they were released, the Orjis had two of their vehicles towed away to the premises of the EFCC. They are yet to retrieve their vehicles as at press time.
Meanwhile, the EFCC operatives had earlier arrested another son of the ex governor, Ogbonna Orji, a night before the raid.
