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.”

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

  1. If he was a fellow Nigeria fellow low citizen like me. The EFCC we never accept to leave. They are going to apply force to drag suspected citizen to office without a warrant.

  2. Thank God you didn’t go with them, with the rate of kidnapping, for all we know they might be one. Although maybe if they weren’t kidnappers they won’t have left on a second thought

  3. That is never a problem if he is innocent of what he has been accused of. Going to their office on Monday shows his free from their claims.

  4. Then there’s fire on the mountain, I hope they have not come to survey the whole house for another attack as kidnappers because I fear they might be impostors. Don’t take this matter with levity sir.

  5. Maybe they get information concerning you or something else if not how will EFCC suddenly breaks into your home.

  6. Thank God you didn’t go with them, with the rate of kidnapping, for all we know they might be one. Although maybe if they weren’t kidnappers they won’t have left on a second thought

  7. from the post, its just a one on one invitation for CYBER-TALKING. so if he is not guilty, u don’t even drag issues

  8. I thought its not just like that efcc go to a persons house what’s there reason before just coming into his house

  9. just tell the public the simple truth are you not really doing it and the EFCC just fill like to insult you??? if so y are they not accusing other people

  10. How will the men of EFCC go and arrest someone without an arrest warrant? I thinl he should not spare them because is like a set up.

  11. Effc are just looking for a way to extort money from you in a strategize way that’s all

  12. If you don’t have skeleton in your cupboard there is nothing to fret about only if there is well go and grant them audience on Monday and let’s see how it goes

  13. Efcc must av seen sum evidence b4 cumin to him……jst saying sha,w e cbt judge by hearing one side of d story

  14. This is not right at least they should be a search warrant but on the other hand they don’t need to inform him before searching because he might be prepared

  15. Everyone has is right and privileges and should not be infringe upon. You went to meet someone and ask him to follow you without any warrant or IV, how are we sure it was EFCC and not Criminals

  16. The guys may not be from Efcc, it might be another method of kidnapping,thank God you didn’t follow them

  17. Hmmm……… Are u commiting cyber crime? If no, then u have nothing to worry abt that’s if they are truly efcc

  18. EFCC is at it again! What’s happening..? This 1 looks like harassment…it should be resolved amicably.. maybe is politically motivated

  19. In very rumors there is a little truth in it because EFCC can’t just come to your house to arrest you without you been at front so the should now is for them to invest in the matter very well

  20. They have no right to storm your house just like that even with a search warrant. They should have done it the normal way

  21. You can imagine, EFCC came to arrest you without search warrant or arrest letter. Are you sure they are for real?

  22. I’m not sure about them because they cab question anyone without permission or something to show. Its good you didn’t follow them

  23. But it is not proper to stormed into someone’s with out a warrant. All this power tousle in Nigeria should stop.

  24. It is not proper to stormed into someone’s with out a warrant. All this power tousle in Nigeria should stop.

  25. Just like that, they want to arrest, some of this Government officials dont know their job

  26. The EFCC we never accept to leave. They are going to apply force to drag suspected citizen to office without a warrant.

  27. They must have done proper investigation before approaching a search warrant, so he should be confident of he’s not guilty

  28. I believe efcc Don’t just accuse people wrongly at least there must be a reason for this but if u are sure u are clean then u HV nothing to worry abt

  29. Thats not right…as citizens of thos country….
    We must always stand on rights…dwe should not let our rights be abused….equality before the law

  30. It a normal thing to search one’s house. You don’t have to be sacred if you are not guilty of the crime

  31. Is this now he you enter people’s house and Tell them to follow you without following due process? Efcc watch it oo

  32. The EFCC are doing their job and that might have been monitoring you of which they have evidence of him

  33. Why raising alarm if you’re innocent…. The EFCC guys are working on information and if after sorting you out, nothing incriminating is found in you, definitely, they will allow you to go.

  34. Then there’s fire on the mountain, I hope they have not come to survey the whole house for another attack as kidnappers because I fear they might be impostors. Don’t take this matter with levity sir.

  35. What a shame. How long will this intimidation and misuse of power continue. Well, no condition is permanent.

  36. That’s the Nigeria we live in, where due process has been thrown out of the window, because he’s a public figure they left him, if he was just an ordinary citizen, they would just carried him, innocent or not.

  37. This intimidation should stop. As they do this they embarrass the nation. What stop them from inviting him over as they later did

  38. EFCC can’t just storm one’s house without a hint, something is hidden somewhere. Meanwhile they should have follow the rule of law by providing search warrant/arrest. In every lie there’s an atom of truth. Be vigilant
