We Didn’t Invade Skales’ Home – EFCC




The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday morning denied allegations of raiding the home of Nigerian singer, John Njeng-Ngeng popularly known as Skales.

In the early hours of Tuesday, Skales, through his X handle, accused the EFCC of breaking into his home, carrying guns and hammers.

The singer posted, “So #officialEFCC pulled up to my house with 3 men with guns and some with sticks and hammers lol, they broke my back door while I was sleeping on the bed with my 6month old daughter, imagine I had a panic attack Cz of my health issues…. Is this not a crime?”

However, the agency, through its spokesman, Dele Oyewale, declared the claim by the singer untrue.

While stating that the claims are unfounded, Oyewale stressed that officials of the anti-graft agency do not operate in such a manner.

He said, “Number 1, we don’t invade. Number 2, we don’t conduct any raids. Number 3, there are ways and rules to identify a regular EFCC operative.

“So, to all intents and purposes, all of his claims, they are totally removed from what an EFCC operation looks like.”

Oyewale also noted that the incident might be an allegation, as the invaders could be impersonators of the EFCC roaming around.

“People can make allegations but the authenticity of the allegation viz a viz the reality on the ground concerning any organisation you’re talking about is important.

“There are impersonations all around, all over the place. So, they are not. We are very polite. We don’t do all those things,” Oyewale said.

He also called on the singer to show evidence of his claims.

“And I will want him to come forward, if he has photo evidence or video evidence, to show that’s it’s an EFCC thing, because we don’t have such things,” Oyewale added.
