According to A mild drama ensued at the headquarters of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) on Friday as operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed the place following a tip off that some staff were involved in alleged multimillion naira fraud, Ripples has learnt.

Ripples was reliably informed that the operatives of the EFCC arrived the headquarters of the agency in their operational vehicles as early as 10.00 am.
A source hinted that they used the vehicle as barricade to block other cars and the staff from exiting the premises.
It was not exactly clear as at the time of this report what informed the unscheduled visit of the anti – graft agency.
Sources hinted that on arrival, the EFCC operatives moved to the accounts and procurement units to check the books.
The visit of the EFCC, according to sources, has heightened anxiety among senior officials of the agency.
Members of staff were anxious over what may have drawn the attention of the anti-graft agency to NAMA.
Investigations revealed that EFCC’s visit may not be unconnected with petitions written by some aviation unions over alleged misapplication of funds.
An official of the agency, who pleaded not to be named, confirmed the visit of the EFCC, but did not state reasons for the visit.
Recall that the Federal Government last year set up an anti – corruption task force in the sector to check alleged graft.
The task force is made up of officials of aviation agencies and the EFCC and Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (ICPC).
A source hinted that the EFCC informed the Ministry of Aviation and officials before its visit following petitions concerning some financial transactions in the agency.
