VIDEO: How EFCC staff engaged in a gun battle with Soldiers, Police at Ogun Hotel – Singer Seyi Vibez spills
Entertainer Seyi Vibez has narrated a gun duel that ensued overnight between operatives of Economic Financial Crimes Commission, Soldiers, Police officers and Yahoo Boys at Conference Hotel in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The hotel is owned by former Ogun governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel who decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) not too long ago.
The EFCC Officers reportedly broke into rooms and seized phones and other valuables without presenting any warrant. They also seized at least 20 cars from alleged internet fraudsters popularly known as Yahoo boys.
The operatives met some resistance from soldiers and police officers and fired at them for trying to intervene. The soldiers and police officers also reportedly fired back.
Some students who were alleged to be Yahoo boys also reportedly fired back at the EFCC operatives.
Seyi Vibez, who was performing at an award event in one of the halls of the hotel when the shooting began, sustained minor injuries in a bid to run for his life.
He shared a video, narrating how Award attendees were forced to flee as the shooting disrupted the event.
“Unfortunately, there was so much shooting and I had to run into the bush,” he said in the video which showed him visibly distressed and sweaty.
“I’m so scared right now and I have to start going back to my house.”
