New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) and police have raided several Auckland homes of Fiji nationals in connection with an alleged plot to assassinate Fiji's Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.

 According to a Stuff.co.nz report, former cabinet minister Rajesh Singh who also had his place raided said the officials, armed with a search warrant, seized his daughter's laptop computer and his cell phone yesterday.

Several other Fiji nationals have told Fairfax they were also visited.

A spokesman for NZ Prime Minister John Key refused any comment.

"This is an operational matter.  We have no comment on security and intelligence matters."

Singh said the security officials told him that they had "credible evidence" that the assassination was planned in Auckland a fortnight ago during a visit by Fiji Army Colonel Tevita Uluilakeba Mara.

Colonel Mara, who is wanted on charges that he was plotting to overthrow Bainimarama, fled Fiji in May last year and has refuge with the Tongan royal family, to whom he is related, in Nuku'alofa.

Mara was in Auckland two weeks ago.

Singh said a woman who he named said she was from the SIS and that she had a warrant to search his place.

He asked for a copy of the warrant but was told it was classified and he could not have it.

She was accompanied by three plain clothed police.

They took away the computer and cell phone and gave him a blank receipt for it, which included the SIS's 0800 number.

"They said: 'We heard Mara came here' and I said: 'Yes, Mara comes here every time, we have been friends for 40 years'."

They told him they had "credible evidence" that Mara and another New Zealander were planning to assassinate Bainimarama and his attorney general Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.

"I said that was news to me... I said it never happened, we never talked about those things."

Singh and others visited were members of a small Auckland based group, Coalition for Democracy in Fiji which has called for the restoration of democracy.
