… clarifies Dorathy was not at home when the operatives came calling

“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”

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says nine cyber fraud suspects were apprehended during a wee-hour raid at a block of flats in Lekki, housing BBNaija star Dorathy Bachor.

According to the anti-graft agency, its operatives had a duly issued search warrant to search the entire block for the “big Lekki boys”.

It said unfortunately, Dorathy’s flat is one of the apartments the officials had to raid and nine cyber fraud suspects were nabbed.

“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,” the commission explained.

Persecondnews recalls that the BBNaija star Bachor had called out EFCC, claiming its operatives broke into her apartment in Lagos early on Monday.

Reacting to Bachor’s version of the story, the EFCC’s spokesman, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, described her story as a hearsay, saying she was not at home when the operatives came calling.

“Congratulating to the information making the rounds in the social media, Ms. Bachor was not present during the operation.

“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,” it said.

Persecondnews also quotes the EFCC as saying:”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.

“It is important to state that law abiding citizens have no reason to refuse the execution of a validly obtained Search Warrant.”
