EFCC Responds to Alleged Skales’ House Invasion

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to allegations of home invasion made by singer, John Njeng Njeng aka Skales.

Skales, in a series of tweets on his X handle on Tuesday, October 10, accused the EFCC officials of raiding his house fully armed and causing damage to his property.

He also expressed concern about his health as well as the safety of his 6-month-old daughter who he claimed his wife mistakenly dropped during the invasion in a recent tweet.

However, via his official X handles, the EFCC announced its Lagos Command effected the arrests of two suspected internet fraudsters at Skales’ residence.

While the law enforcement agency didn’t expressly address the allegation of home invasion, it nonetheless established the singer accommodated two men who described the father of one as their ‘mentor’ and were being suspected of involvement in a dating scam.

The body stated the duo would be “charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.”

The post displayed photos of the two suspects and read: “EFCC Arrests Two Suspected Internet Fraudsters in Musician’s Residence.”

The EFFC said: “Operatives of the Lagos Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, arrested two suspected internet fraudsters at House F10, Victoria Crest 4, Lekki, Lagos.

“The suspects: Udemba Chukwuemeka (a.k.a Jody) and Jamal Jamiu Onasola (a.k.a. Jamal) were arrested at the residence of a musician: John Njeng Njeng (a.k.a Skales).

“The two suspects, suspected of being involved in dating scam, described Njeng as their “mentor”. While Chukwuemeka has been in Njeng’s residence for two years, Onasola has only stayed there for few months. They will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
