Nigerian music sensation Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, widely recognized as Skales, used his social media platform ‘X’ in the early hours of October 10 to reveal an unsettling incident involving the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of Nigeria (EFCC).
Skales reported that EFCC agents entered his home with firearms, ostensibly for a routine inspection.
According to the musician, the EFCC had received information suggesting his involvement in fraudulent activities.
Skales expressed his disbelief by stating, “They claimed to have received intelligence suggesting my involvement in fraudulent activities, lol. They described it as a routine inspection. Fortunately, they discovered no evidence to support these allegations.”
