“I was just threatened for speaking out now.”

Meanwhile, the EFCC has denied unlawfully invading Skales’ residence.

EFCC spokesman, Dele Oyewale, told PUNCH: “Number 1, we don’t invade. Number 2, we don’t conduct any raids. Number 3, there are ways and rules to identify a regular EFCC operative.

“So, to all intents and purposes, all of his claims, they are totally removed from what an EFCC operation looks like.”

Adding, “People can make allegations but the authenticity of the allegation viz a viz the reality on the ground concerning any organisation you’re talking about is important.

“There are impersonations all around, all over the place. So, they are not. We are very polite. We don’t do all those things.
