Some Nigerian Air Force (NAF) operatives have stormed Kaduna State office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the arrest of some suspected internet fraudsters including some serving military officers.

The military men according to reports arrived at the anti-graft agency office located at Number 4, Wurno Road in the Kaduna State capital around 10am on Friday in about three Hilux patrol vans and surrounded the main gate of the commission.

During the siege, EFCC officials were prevented from going in or out of the office.

In what appeared like a combat situation, the Air Force soldiers and policemen attached to the EFCC engaged one other in a shouting match which resulted to pointing their guns at each other.

Meanwhile, the spokesman for the EFCC, Dele Oyewale, in a phone call with Channels TV, said the suspects who included an officer of the Nigerian Army and six persons from the NAF were arrested on Monday for Internet-related crime.

He explained that the suspects were in the custody of the commission, pending the conclusion of its investigation and prosecution of the suspects.

He added that the commission was a statutory Federal Government law enforcement agency that could not be coerced by a sister agency while carrying out its official duty.
