EFCC Reveals Why Its Operatives Forcefully Broke Into BBNaija Dorathy’s Home
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed why its operative forcefully broke into the home of former Big Brother Naija housemate, Dorathy Bachor.
KanyiDaily recalls that Dorathy had earlier narrated how armed EFCC operatives broke into her living room in search of a person who ran into the estate on Monday morning.
The BBNaija star lamented over how unsafe it is to be a Nigerian after the anti-graft men refused to tender an apology to her after they discovered their mistake.
Why EFCC Broke Into Dorathy Bachor’s Home
Reacting in a statement on Monday, EFCC explained that its operatives forcefully broke into Dorathy’s home because her sister refused to open the door for several minutes.
EFCC said the search warrant at Bachor’s house was based “on verified intelligence”, adding that nine suspected fraudsters were arrested in the block of flats housing the BBNaija star.
”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,” the statement reads.
KanyiDaily had also reported how Dorathy Bachor broke down in tears after she received a surprise gift from her fans who gifted her a Mercedes Benz car for her 25th birthday.
