Gunmen attack EFCC Abuja office
Unidentified Gunmen early today struck at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, located at Wuse Zone 7, Abuja.
The group of heavily armed men invaded the office at about 05.00 hours and shot into the premises, damaging vehicles parked in the premises. However, the attack was repelled by guards on duty.
The hoodlums who escaped left a message; a white envelope dropped by the fleeing attackers was found to contain 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 hats.
The incident has already been reported to the police for investigation.
