EFCC debunks allegation of raiding Skales’ home


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has debunked an allegation that its personnel raided the home of rapper Skales.

Spokesman of the EFCC Dele Oyewale told Punch on Tuesday that the anti-graft agency does not operate that way.

He said, “Number one, we don’t invade. Number two, we don’t conduct any raids. Number three, there are ways and rules to identify a regular EFCC operative. So, to all intents and purposes, all of his claims, they are totally removed from what an EFCC operation looks like.”

Mr Oyewale also stated that the raiders could be impersonators, urging the rapper to provide photo or video evidence of the alleged incident.

The spokesman further said that EFCC personnel are “very polite” and do not behave in the manner in which Skales described.

Skales on Tuesday accused the EFCC of raiding his home in a series of posts on X (formerly known as Twitter).

The 32-year-old said that three of the officials were armed, broke into his house and harassed him in the presence of his family.

He wrote: “So @officialEFCC pulled up to my house with 3 men with guns and some with sticks and hammers lol, they broke my back door while I was sleeping on the bed with my 6month old daughter, imagine I had a panic attack Cz of my health issues…. Is this not a crime.”

“God go punish una @officialEFCC I am not a criminal, and I have never don fraud in my life, you came in with guns to oppress me in front of my daughter and her mother & my staff. You will never prosper in anything you do as long as you’re Efcc staff! You will always be a failure,” the rapper added in another post.
