Emerging reports indicates that that operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Monday, shut down The Sun Publishing Limited office.
According to Sun Newspaper, the raid was said to be an “order from above”.
They claimed to have “orders from above”, to seal up the premises of The Sun Publishing Limited.
The raid was said to have lasted for an hour, with Journalists subjected to crude intimidation, psychological and emotional trauma.
Recall, that the EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu, had in an earlier letter, threatened to sue The Sun, “over a report published by one of our titles, pertaining to a report on investigation of a property allegedly traced to his wife. 

“In the light of the above, we strongly view this onslaught against The Sun, as a personal vendetta by the leadership of the Commission, and by extension, a declaration of war against the media.
“In this invasion of our premises, it is crystal clear that what Magu and his Commission are after, is not only to intimidate and muzzle us, but a furious attempt to call a dog a bad name, in order to hang it.
“On the issue of the interim order, which he purportedly based his invasion, Magu knows the matter has been on appeal since 2007, for which hearing comes up this week. But rather than wait for the court process, the Commission under the leadership of Magu, typically resorted to self help”, a statement from its website read.
