“Publicity Seeking Player” – EFCC Denies Helen Aduru’s Claims That Its Operatives Assaulted Her

Glamsquad reports that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has denied claims made by Nollywood actress, Helen Aduru that some of its operatives assaulted her.

Recall that on Saturday, 3rd September, Aduru took to her Instagram page to share a vivid account of how operatives of EFCC allegedly broke into her house in Enugu and beat her to a stupor.

She also shared a video of herself covered in blood and with a fractured skull. According to her, the operatives who appeared to be Hausa’s took turns to beat her. Read here

However, in a statement released by EFCC, they denied the claims made by Duru while describing her as a “mere publicity-seeking player with a poorly- scripted claim.

”False and Misleading Video in Circulation on EFCC Operations

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to an online video trending on Instagram, from the handle of a certain “@Iamhelenaduru”, a self- styled actress, purporting, quite mischievously, an assault by operatives of the Commission.

Checks by the Commission, however, flagged Helen Aduru, an upcoming actress, as a mere publicity- seeking player, with a poorly- scripted claim that has fallen flat in the face of unassailable facts available to the Commission

In her script, she was quick to include five names of officers she claimed came from the Cybercrime Section of the Enugu Command of the Commission. Characteristically, EFCC’s officers don’t wear name tags nor move around with bulldozer- shaped equipment to pull down security doors.

Aduru claimed, rather strangely, that she was assisted by a little boy, to a Police Station at 3:44 am but met the station shut. It is important to note that Police Stations are not civil service ministries that “close” in the evening. Even more preposterous is the fact that she never went back, at daybreak, to lodge a complaint.

More poignantly untenable is the fact that her purported assault of July 21, 2022, which has not been logged nearly two months later at the Police Station is only being brought to public glare on September 2, 2022!! Such a scene could only stand on a typical Nollywood fiction series.

Such claims by Aduru, like all other stranger- than- fiction, click-baiting, sympathy-seeking ploys, do not merit a response but for the need to avoid “silence is acquiescence” stance of mischief makers. Deeper checks on the matter only showed that, certain blackmailers could be bandying some known names in the Enugu Zonal Command to settle some scores.

Glamsquad recalls also that the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas frowned at the allegations levied against the commission. Read here
