The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has concluded plans to charge the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) personnel who stormed its office in Kaduna on Friday to free their detained colleague to court.
The commission had on Monday detained six NAF officers who attempted to free suspected internet fraudsters arrested by its operatives at a residential Inn and Disney Chicken Eatery Barnawa in Kaduna on Monday.
The matter took a twist on Friday morning when six officers invaded the commission’s office in Hilux patrol vans to forcibly release their detained colleagues.
The operatives engaged themselves in a shouting match before normalcy was restored following intervention by senior officers from both sides.
The EFCC later released the detained military officers after a meeting between the leadership of the two organisations.
