The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied assaulting, brutalising, or subjecting to any dehumanising treatment of some suspects arrested last Saturday in Akure, Ondo State.

A statement by the EFFC’s Head of Media & Publicity, Dele Oyewale, titled EFCC’s Akure Arrests: Setting the Records Straight, urged the public to discountenance a viral video of two ladies lacerated by whips.

The Commission further says that it will subject the video to forensic analysis to establish its falsehood and prepare a case against purveyors of what it called the “distasteful stunt”.

The EFCC denied using any tear gas during the operation even as it also denied tampering with the CCTV facility at the scene of the arrest.

“It is also important to state that no damage was done to the CCTV facility at the scene of the arrest,” the EFCC said. “The device was removed by a staff of the Club at the instance of operatives of the Commission to preserve the footage for further analysis of the role of each of the arrested suspects in the alleged crime”.
