Gunmen open fire on top EFCC operative in Rivers





Gunmen open fire on top EFCC operative in Rivers
Suspected gunmen have allegedly attempted to kill a top investigator with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Austin Okwor, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

According to Ishaq Salihu, who is the head of the anti-graft agency’s Zonal office in the South-South, Okwor had closed late for the day and as he left office, he was suddenly accosted by a gang of daredevil hoodlums who opened fire on him.

He added that “Luckily for him, he was able to shake off his assailants but not without sustaining some bullet wounds as they kept firing at him.

“He was rushed to a private hospital in Port Harcourt where he is receiving treatment.”

Salihu said the incident had already been reported to the Police in Port Harcourt.

Okwor, who is one of the operatives investigating some sensitive cases, including that pertaining to corrupt judicial officials, had reportedly been receiving threat messages before the incident occurred.

One of such messages which he received sometime in May 2017 was reported to the police.
