EFCC arrests fake "EFCC operatives"
The suspects had tried to extort some money from the complainant who they told had a petition against him at the commission. They promised to give the complaint a soft landing if he co-operated and gave them some money.
Suspecting a foul player, the complainant contacted the commission and he was asked to play along as the EFCC does not solicit for, nor accept payments/gratification from persons or organisations under any guise to settle matters.
The commission arrested both men at the home of the complainant where they had gone to collect N100, 000 bribe meant to kill a fictitious case. They will soon be charged to court.
