Why we broke into Dorathy Bachor’s apartment -EFCC



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed why the apartment of Big Brother Naija Lockdown finalist, Dorathy Bachor was raided.

Bachor had alleged that armed operatives of the EFCC broke into her Lagos residence in the early hours of today, 23rd August, 2021.

She took to her Instastory to narrate the incident.

The serial entrepreneur said her aged mother almost suffered a “panic attack” as a result of the incident.

Giving reasons for the raid, EFCC in a statement on Monday said they acted on verified intelligence and executed a Search Warrant at a block of flats located in the Lekki during which nine internet fraud suspects were arrested.

Bachor’s apartment happened to be one of the flats in the building.

The EFCC claimed they 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”.
