EFCC Explains Why It Arrested Four Air Force Officials
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday explained why it arrested and detained four Nigerian Air Force (NAF) officials.
In a statement titled Facts of the Face-off Between EFCC and NAF Officers in Kaduna, the anti-graft agency revealed that the military officials were arrested and kept behind bars after they attempted to forcefully release suspected internet fraudsters.
The EFCC further explained that dialogue on the release broke down on Friday after some unruly NAF officials stormed the anti-graft agency office to release the military men in detention forcefully.
