from #lindaikejiblogofficial Reality TV star, Dorathy Bachor, expresses anger after EFCC officers
broke into her apartment this morning August 23 while searching for a suspected internet fraudster
EFCC officers reportedly returned to Dorathy’s apartment to bully, destroy property..
Power drunk officers from the EFCC stormed the residence of Nigerian entertainer Dorathy Bachor located at Lekki, Lagos on Monday evening.
The officers were humiliated earlier on Monday after Dorathy shared pictures of their barbaric and unprofessional invasion of her apartment at 4:00 a.m
over purported search for Internet fraudsters. The EFCC has been breaching privacy of Nigerians
across the southern parts of the country for several weeks, with officers breaking into hotel and residential apartments
without knocking to the trauma of naked housewives and young girls.
Last month, the anti-graft office suffered immense public ridicule for breaking into Parktonian Hotel in Lagos,
horrifying Nigerians and foreign investors who had lodged there.
A spokesman for the EFCC later justified the act of storming in on naked men and women as necessary because some Internet fraudsters have perfected the tactics of using women as shields to evade arrest.
On Monday evening, the EFCC again justified breaking into Dorathy’s apartment,
Shortly after the statement was circulated, reports emerged again that EFCC operatives returned to the apartment,
breaking in and harassing residents for filming their earlier invasion and circulating it online.
9 internet fraudsters arrested in BBnaija Dorathy’s apartment —EFCCThe Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC,
has revealed that 9 internet fraudsters were arrested while raiding the apartment of a former BBNaija housemate, Dorathy Bachor.
Recall that Dorathy had taken to social media to lambast the agency over its unprofessional conduct during the raid.
Reacting, the EFCC in a statement obtained by Vanguard Monday, wrote:
The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been drawn to a post on Instagram by one Dorothy Bachor,
alleging that operatives of the Commission broke into her home in the early hours of today, 23rd August, 2021
“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
