Filmmaker, Abiodun Stephen has narrated how armed men who claimed to be EFCC operatives barged into her hotel room at Midnight.
She claims anger welled up inside her at the disgusting sight as the men asked her absurd questions before realizing they had the wrong person.
They afterward left her room to arrest other hotel guests.
Biodun also said the hotel claimed that's how it has been - that the "EFCC barrages their way in" at will.
“That is how I slept in a hotel whilst filming last week. Next thing, I open my eyes at a little past 3:00 am; what did I see? Two men dressed in black with weapons. I thought I was dreaming.
“Then I heard the door to my room close; I sprang up, and without thinking, shouted. ‘Stay right there! Who are you?’ They replied, ‘we are EFCC’. My head spark. Are you kidding me? You enter into my room unannounced?She said.
The movie director further stated that the EFCC officials claimed that they knocked but got no response thus they entered unannounced.
“You decide to enter my room?” she asked them. “You should have kept on knocking. I was sleeping like any normal person would,” Stephen said.
She continued, “One just open him mouth waaa… ‘where is the man of the room?’ I first confuse. ‘The who?’ He replied, ‘your partner.’ Anger well up inside me. Is this one roving mad?
“His partner realised his folly because he quickly apologized. ‘You are not who we are looking for.’ I watched as they interviewed guests rudely and arrested a few. They knew the people they were after.”
“They just burst into hotel rooms in the middle of the night, not caring who you are or what state you are in,”
“I mean, the hotel is a really decent hotel; so, I couldn’t understand how this could happen. They alleged EFCC barrages their way in. A mess, I tell you.” she concluded.
