Unknown Gunmen Attacks EFCC Head Office In Abuja


Some unknown gunmen assaulted the head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Abuja on Wednesday. 

The representative for the commission, Wilson Uwajaren, who revealed this in an announcement hours after the episode, said the shooters left a demise note for one of the counter unite office's criminologists. 

He said the aggressors did not prevail with regards to entering the complex since security guards that were on duty effectively prevented them. 

The announcement reads, “A major security breach was recorded at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in the early hours of Wednesday, August 16, 2017, as unknown gunmen attacked the office located at Wuse Zone 7, Abuja.

“The group of heavily armed bandits invaded the office at about 05.00 hours and began shooting into the premises, damaging vehicles parked in the premises in the process. However, the attack was repelled by guards on duty.

“The hoodlums escaped in a getaway vehicle but not without leaving a message; a white envelope dropped by the fleeing attackers was found to contain a death threat addressed to Ishaku Sharu, a senior investigator with the commission.

“Ishaku, who heads the foreign exchange malpractices fraud section, is in charge of corruption investigation involving several politically exposed persons and retired military brass hats.

“The attack on the Zone 7 office, which houses the commission’s AMCON desk, procurement fraud and foreign exchange malpractices sections, is coming few weeks after another investigator, Austin Okwor, was shot and wounded by unknown assailants in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.”

Uwujaren included that the occurrence had just been accounted for to the police for investigation.
