The BBNaija star, Dorathy Bachor has called out men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for barging into her home and disturbing her sleep.
Bachor, in a post on social media on Monday, had stated that the operatives broke the door to her house in the name of searching for someone who ran into her estate.
She said that the incident left her shaken while her mother almost had a panic attack.
According to her, she heard some noises and voices at 4:45am in the morning and rushed out almost undressed to see what was happening.
On getting there she saw five men who were fully armed in her sitting room. Noting that they identified her, they told her to go back into her room and not say a word.

Reacting to this, the EFCC, in a statement on Facebook, said Bachor’s apartment happened to be one of the flats in a building in Lekki, Lagos where its operatives arrested nine suspected fraudsters.
The statement was titled, “EFCC Explains Presence Of Operatives At Dorathy Bachor’s House.’
It read, “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 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.”
