“I feel like my head is about to explode, I’m numb.
“At 04:45am, I heard a loud sound and voices followed after. I rush(ed) out almost naked to see 5 fully armed @officialefcc men in my living room and one of them saying, ‘oh na that big brother babe be this’.
“In my confused state, I’m trying to understand what in the hell was going on, why did they break my door?
“Then, one of them said they were looking for someone who ran into my estate and I should lock my door, stay indoors and not say a word.
“I’m shaking at this point and so confused because how exactly is this even okay?
“Still shaking, I’m trying to close my already broken door when my sister screamed my name and I ran back upstairs to see my mom almost have a panic attack.
“I have never felt so helpless in my whole life.
“@officialefcc you now break into people’s houses and jump estate fences all in the name of doing your job. Shame on you all.”
