The offices of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have been attacked by unknown gunmen in the early hours of Wednesday, August 16, 2017.

In what has been described as an unprecedented security breach, the still unknown gunmen attacked, the Abuja annex of the Headquarters of the Commission located at Wuse Zone 7, Abuja, EFCC spokesman Wilson Uwujaren stated.

He said a group of heavily armed bandits invaded the office at about 05.00 hours and began shooting into the premises.

He explained that they damaged vehicles parked in the premises but were repelled by guards on duty.

He added that the gunmen escaped in a getaway vehicle but not without leaving a message in a white envelope dropped by the fleeing attackers.

He said the white envelop contained a death threat addressed to Ishaku Sharu, a senior investigator with the Commission.

Ishaku who heads the Foreign Exchange Malpractices Fraud Section is in charge of corruption investigation involving several politically exposed persons and retired military brass.

The attack on the Zone 7 office which houses the Commission’s AMCON Desk, Procurement Fraud and Foreign Exchange Malpractices Sections, is coming few weeks after another investigator, Austin Okwor was shot and wounded by unknown assailants in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The EFCC acting Chairman, Ibrahim Magu in a recent interview told Daily Trust that corruption is fighting back and corrupt people were after him.

The Commission under his leadership has boasted of increasing the tempo of the fight against corruption more than ever before.

It has also bragged that illicit moneys recovered within the last two years have surpassed all recovered loot since the inception of the Commission.

The EFCC said the latest incident has already been reported to the police for investigation.
