The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday sealed the multi-billion naira Enugu Mall.
Head of Public Affairs of EFCC, Chris Oluka, confirmed the incident.
Oluka said the managers of the building flouted the directive of EFCC on the construction of the building.
“Yes, our men went there to disperse them because they flouted our instructions.
“We had sealed the premises and wrote ‘under EFCC investigation’, but they covered the write-up with paint,” he said.
The agency had earlier this year sealed the mall located beside the Enugu State House of Assembly.
Oluka said allowing the business to operate in the building could jeopardise investigations.
“I do not have much to say about this because the officers that dispersed the workers this morning came from Abuja,” Oluka said.
Oluka said the invitation of the manager of the mall should not be misconstrued as an arrest.
“They were invited to come and explain why they did what we told them not to do,” Oluka said.
