Due to the arrest of some alleged Internet fraudsters, members of the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) stormed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) Kaduna State Zonal Office on Friday.
Some former military personnel were among the suspects.
Around 10 a.m., three Hilux patrol vans pulled up to the EFCC office at Number 4, Wurno Road in the Kaduna State capital. They surrounded the anti-graft commission office’s main gate to stop the officials from entering or exiting.
The two federal security agencies were pointing their weapons at one another as the Air Force personnel and police officers from the EFCC engaged in what appeared to be a combative shouting match.

The suspects, who included one Nigerian Army service member and six NAF members, were detained on Monday for Internet-related fraud, the EFCC’s spokesman Dele Oyewale informed Channels Television over the phone in response to the development.
The suspects are being held by the commission pending the conclusion of its investigation and prosecution, according to the EFCC Head of Media and Publicity.
