A Nigerian Man recounted how he was arrested and put in cell wrongly by EFCC Officials in Ibadan.
He shared his story below:
Here is the beginning of my nightmares.
EFCC Officials broke into my apartment around 4am on this day and arrested me at gunpoint at first I thought they were armed 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 smartphone, 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 worse self, the 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 mental disturbance and emotional disorder, I keep asking myself what did I do wrong?
No evidence in me but yet detained.
Finally I met up with bail condition on the third day only for me to got home and found out that my apartment was robbed immediately after EFCC left because the door was broken, my plasma tv and every good appliances in my room was stolen including foodstuffs
Before I forget, my device is still with them because they are still doing their investigation, now I am back to square one
thanks to almighty EFCC.
This can happened to any Nigerian Youth, Please share this for awareness.
