In Rage the Veteran Nigerian filmmaker/actress, Biodun Stephen has accused operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of breaking into her hotel room at 3am.
The filmmaker made the above known in a lengthy post shared on the social media platform, Instagram as she decried the incident that occurred recently whilst filming a project.
According to her, on the said night she was asleep when she was suddenly awoken by two men who had gained entrance into her hotel room. She stated that both men were dressed in all-black.
The men would go on to introduce themselves as EFCC officials after she lambasted them for entering her hotel room without her permission.
In the ensuing face-off, Stephen stated that the official asked about the “man of the room”, much to her disconcertion.
“That is how I slept in a hotel whilst filming last week. Next thing, I open my eyes at a little past 3 am. What did I see? Two men dressed in black weapons. I thought I was dreaming. Then I heard the door to my room close,” she wrote.
“I sprang up and without thinking shouted: ‘stay right there!!! Who are you!!! They replied: ‘We are EFCC’. My head sparked. Are you kidding me? You enter into my room unannounced?? EFCC: Madam, we knocked but no response. You decided to enter my room?? You should have kept knocking.
“I was sleeping like every normal person would. One just opened his mouth and said: “Where is the man of the room. I was confused at first. The who? He replied: ‘your partner.’
“Anger well up inside me…Is this one roving mad man? His partner realised his folly because he quickly apologised. ‘You are not the one we are looking for.’”
