Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday evening, again, attacked the residents of BBNaija reality star, Dorathy Bachor.
Naija News gathered that the anti-graft agency who had broken into the reality star home earlier in the day returned to the apartment, breaking in and harassing residents for filming their earlier invasion and circulating it online.
Dorathy’s sister captured this evening’s raid on Instagram live.
EFCC operatives could be seen in the video knocking a man separately filming the incident to the ground and breaking his device.
Dorathy had claimed that the commission invaded her residence, claiming that they were after suspected internet fraudsters.
Defending it’s actions, the anti-corruption agency said its operatives broke into her residence because they refused to open the door.
EFCC said, “The Commission can confirm that operatives from the Lagos Command of the Commission, acting on verified intelligence, executed a Search Warrant at a block of flats located in the Lekki area of Lagos on Monday, 23rd August 2021 during which nine internet fraud suspects were arrested.
“Ms Bachor’s apartment happened to be one of the flats in the building. EFCC operatives had knocked on her entrance door, identified themselves as being from the Commission on a mission to execute a Search Warrant. But they were refused entry, for several minutes by Bachor’s sister. The operatives were left with no choice than to force their way in, lest suspects escape or destroy vital evidence.
“It is important to state that law-abiding citizens have no reason to refuse the execution of a validly obtained Search Warrant. And, contrary to the information making the rounds in the social media, Ms Bachor was not present during the operation and the anti- EFCC stories about her coming out half-naked among other fantastical details appear to have been invented to fit the pattern she and other internet-fueled stars so desperately want to push about the EFCC.
“It is important to reiterate that nine alleged internet fraud suspects were apprehended in the block of flats housing Ms Bachor’s apartment.”
