9 cybercriminals were arrested BBNaija Dorathy’s house – EFCC



EFCC says 9 cybercriminals were arrested in Dorathy's apartment

Reacting to claims of a break-in on Dorathy’s house by its operatives, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has revealed that nine internet fraudsters were apprehended during the raid.

Recall that Chronicle Ng reported that the former BBNaija housemate had posted on her Instagram story about how heavily-armed EFCC operatives broke into her home around 4am on Monday morning.

She lamented how she felt exposed and unsafe in her own house.

According to the anti-graft agency, Dorathy Bachor’s sister had refused to let the operatives in after they had knocked which prompted them to break into the apartment to prevent the suspects from fleeing through that part of the building.


The EFCC alleged that the former BBNaija housemate was not present during the operation, adding that she only made-up the story about her being half-naked.

The commission disclosed this in a statement on Monday;

“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.”
