EFCC Operatives ‘Storm Doyin Okupe’s Home’


Two anti-graft officers from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission were at the home of former presidential aide Doyin Okupe in Lagos, the politician said on Saturday.

Mr Okupe said in a tweet at about 4:30 p.m. that the EFCC agents stormed his house in Ilupeju neighbourhood without bearing any invitation document or arrest warrant.

In a follow-up discussion over the development, Mr Okupe told PREMIUM TIMES the agents said he had done something that violated the Cybercrime Act, a repressive law enacted shortly before President Goodluck Jonathan left office in 2015.

“They knocked and I told them to come in, but when they identified themselves as being from the EFCC, I asked for letter of invitation or arrest warrant, but they could not provide either,” Mr Okupe said. “I immediately said I cannot follow them that they should give me time and also go back and obtain a warrant or invitation letter.”

Mr Okupe, a member of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, told PREMIUM TIMES the two officers came from the anti-graft office’s Lagos field office in Ikoyi.

“They said they are looking for me for cyberstalking,” he added. “But they have now left my house and I did not follow them.”
