EFCC's detention cell in Abuja
Recently, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) took some journalists around its underground detention cells in Abuja to let the public know what it looks like.
Journalists were taken round the detention facilities located at the basement of the Idiagbon House, four storey building at the Wuse II, Abuja headquarters of the commission. They were also shown the interrogation room and in house clinic where detainees are first treated in case of emergency.
Journalist also freely interrogated some of the suspects who described the detention facility in good condition. The acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, while taking the reporters on a tour of the facility said that none of what had been shown to the newsmen were arranged.
“If anyone of you think all these have been arranged, you are welcome to come at anytime you chose, to spend time with us and see for yourself (you can even spend some days in the cell); see how EFCC carries out investigation, arrest, interrogation and if you want, be detained as long as you say, in any of our facilities across the country. You don’t need to give us prior notice of your coming. You can even arrange it as a group of reporters if you don’t want to come alone.” he said.
