Nigerian Air Force Personnel Block EFCC Office In Kaduna After Six Military Officers Were Arrested For Internet Fraud | #NwokeukwuMascot
Some Nigerian Air Force (NAF) personnel have stormed the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Kaduna State zone, over the arrest of some suspected internet fraudsters including some serving military personnel.
The military men arrived at the EFCC office sited at Number 4, Wurno Road in the Kaduna State capital around 10am on Friday in about three Hilux patrol vans and surrounded the main gate of the anti-graft commission office thereby preventing the EFCC officials from going in or out of the office.
In what resembled a combat scenario, the Air Force soldiers and policemen attached to the EFCC engaged one other in a shouting match with the two federal security agencies pointing their guns at each other.
The spokesman for the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, in a phone call with Channels TV, said the suspects who included an officer of the Nigerian Army and six persons from the NAF were arrested on Monday for Internet-related fraud.
The EFCC Head of Media and Publicity explained that the suspects were in the custody of the commission, pending the conclusion of its investigation and prosecution of the suspects.
He added that the commission was a statutory Federal Government law enforcement agency that could not be coerced by a sister agency while carrying out its official duty.
