EFCC alleges bomb threat

By Emman Ovuakporie

ABUJA—Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday, raised an alarm over the plethora of bomb threat messages it has received from a faceless group that claims it would repeat the October 1 bombings at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters.

EFCC said the group also threatened to bomb Abuja on November 6 after destroying the anti-graft agency’s headquarters, threatening that FCT “will smoke, big and small will run and vacate.”

Briefing journalists on this development, Head, Media and Publicity of the Commission, Mr Femi Babafemi said: “We will like to state that the Commission and its officials are already used to the daily threats from those that are scared of facing the consequence of their actions.

“But the latest dimension to it is what the Commission is taking seriously and determined to track down those behind them and smoke them out.”

Babafemi explained further,” you may wish to know that the chairman, Mrs Farida Waziri has of late come under intense threats while the criminals behind these threats metamorphosed from the common criminals that we used to regard them to terrorists.”
