UPDATE | Governor Dickson's Aide Flees with His N1.84billion

*Bayelsa Government House accountant’s home raided by SARS over $4.6million
Operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Bayelsa on Wednesday, raided the private residence of the Bayelsa State Government House Accountant, Richard Etonye in a secret operation that lasted for about two hours.

The man, Otonye, is bad sharp guy who is said to have taken his own national cake in Billions.

The house, located along Brass Road was allegedly raided on the orders of Governor Seriake Dickson after Etonye reportedly absconded with his principal's money said to be $4.6m. The cash was handed over to the accountant by the governor for safe keep just a few days before the raid on Tuesday.

When SR contacted a spokesman for Dickson, he claimed that they were not part of the raid and were not informed as to why SARS raided Mr. Etonye’s home.

The spokesman said “[Mr. Etonye] absolutely did not take any money from the Governor” and “we were told that the team was sent from the IG [Idris] from Police Force HQ but we don’t know why.”

But a security source close to Government House, Yenagoa, said Governor Dickson had handed over the sum to his accountant cousin shortly before departing for Akure, Ondo State, to conduct the PDP governorship primary which held on Monday.

''The money was given to him by Oga before we left for Ondo State but by the time we returned, the accountant was no where to be found and his lines switched off,” one source said.

''Even his wife was not at home and after waiting for over twelve hours, the governor ordered that his private residence be searched by the police to see whether or not he kept the money there. Right now, we are looking for him because he has evacuated his family from the official quarters in Government House,'' the source said.

To show that the raid on his house was indeed secret, SR contacted Bayelsa State police spokesman who said that he was unaware of any operation involving Mr. Etonye.
