A young man, Rotimi, has spoken up after he allegedly wrongfully accused by the officials of the Economic Financial Crime Commission, tagged a fraud and arrested at gunpoint in his apartment.
Recall that on the 14th of October, EFCC arrested nine people over internet fraud.
Rotimi has stated that EFCC broke into his house to arrest him, they collected his phones and took him to their office in Ibadan tagging him for a cyber crime without any investigation.
“Here is the beginning of my nightmares.
EFCC broke into my apartment around 4am on this day and arrested me at gunpoint at first I thought they were arm robber because of their mode of operations but after seeing their jacket I was calm since I don’t have anything incriminating …on me, but little did I know that I am automatically a suspect for owning laptop and smart phones.
They collected one Android phone, one iPhone and one small itel phone, I was still very calm because I am not into cyber crime but my story changed when I got to their office
At Ibadan, without investigation they took my pictures alongside with others and uploaded it online💔, my heart was broken because my image has been ruined because I own laptop and smart phones.
Later I was handed over to I.O (investigation Officer ) three people search my phones and Laptop for over four hours they even took it to their ICT but nothing incriminating was found. I thought I will be released that day since nothing was found on me untill they gave me
Bail condition I couldn’t meet up ( one lawyer, two surety with houses property in ibadan and must be a tax payer for at least 2 years 💔) to make matter lawyer wanted to collect 200k for offense I know nothing about.
I was in the cell for two days and I had unspeakable experience in that cell only God will deliver me from the mental disturbance and emotional disorder, I keep asking myself what did I do wrong? No evidence in me but yet detained.
Finally I meet up with bail condition on the third day and I was released only for me to get home and find out that my apartment was robbed again after EFCC broke into it and left it opened, my plasma tv gone, every good appliances in that room was stolen including foodstuffs.
Before I forget my device is still with them because they are still doing their investigation on it💔, I thought EFCC do their research before carrying out arrest, I thought there is Justice and human right in this country, now I am back to square one thanks to EFCC.”
