The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has faulted the claims of an ex-BBNaija housemate, Dorothy Bachor over claims that operatives of the Commission forcefully broke into her house around 4:15am on Monday morning. EFCC said the story does not reflect how the event played out.

According to the Head, Media and Publicity of EFCC, Mr.

Wilson Uwujaren, they were actually at her home in Lekki area of Lagos to effect a search warrant, and that the Dorothy in question was not at home at that time, against her claim that she came out half-naked from the room.

“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 invented to fit the pattern she and other internet-fueled stars so desperately want to push about the EFCC.
