The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has admitted raiding the apartment of a former housemate, Dorathy Bachor.

Recall that Dorathy had taken social media to lambast the agency over its unprofessional conduct during the raid.

Reacting, the EFCC wrote:

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has been drawn 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 suspects were arrested.

Ms. Bachor’s apartment happened 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 their way in, lest suspects escape or destroy vital evidence.

is important 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 reiterate that nine alleged suspects were apprehended in the block of flats housing Ms. Bachor’s apartment.
