EFCC arrests nine suspected 'yahoo boys' in building housing Dorathy's apartment

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said it arrested nine suspected fraud stars during the raid on the buildings housing Big Brother Naija season four housemate, Dorathy Bachor's flat.

It also said the reality tv star lied that she was at home when the anti-graft operatives broke into her residence in the Lekki area of Lagos State.

The EFCC disclosed this in a statement on its Facebook page on Monday.

It said, "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."

WuzupNigeria had reported that the EFCC broke into Dorathy's apartment in the early hours on Monday.
