Newly called to bar, Adeyanju, Sowore blast EFCC officials for harassing citizens taking picture of building (Video)



There was mild drama on Wednesday in front of the headquarters of the Economic and Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Jabi District of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), as former presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore and activist, Deji Adeyanju engaged operatives of the agency in an argument.

In a viral video, the altercation between Adeyanju, who was called to the bar same day as a lawyer, and his friend Sowore emanated from the EFCC operatives stopping citizens from taking pictures of their office building.

The two friends seemed to be angry that they were stopped from taking pictures of a public building built with tax payers’ money.

Sowore who is also the publisher of Sahara Reporters, later took the matter to his official X handle to express his feelings on the altercation.

“Even the @officialEFCC now stations its own goons outside its building to harass by passers in Abuja for @offences as simple as taking photos outside its headquarters.

“They chose the call-to-bar day as one of those unfortunate days to harass people,” he wrote.
