The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has given reasons for forcefully breaking into Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Dorathy Bachor, about 04.45 am on Monday.

Dorathy had alleged that armed operatives of EFCC broke into her Lagos residence and later claimed that it was a mistake.

The former housemate in the 2020 edition of BBNaija reality television show, who took to her Instastory to narrate the incident, said she suffered a “panic attack” as a result of the incident.

In a statement on Monday, EFCC claimed that Dorathy was not at home talkless of walking out “half-naked”.

The anti-corruption agency said, “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 but 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.”
