The Zonal head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Lagos has revealed the two things which Nigerians should demand from EFCC operatives when they are confronted with possibility of arrest.
Ghali Ahmed made this known while speaking regarding the arrest of three suspects for alleged impersonation in Lagos State.Knowing the law and one's right is often a challenge for people who are not aware or educated regarding such matters. Also, knowing what to ask an officer of the law at the point of arrest can prevent one from a lot of troubles. Another factor is the issue of impersonation of law enforcement agencies by some criminals who do so for reasons best known to them.
Stating the first thing to demand from an EFCC operative at the point of arrest Ghali said, "Demand for proper identification from arresting officer."
Revealing the second thing which Nigerians should ask Ghali said, "They can also demand for arrest warrant as the commission does not embark on any operation without a warrant. The operation of the commission are usually in line with international best practices."
