The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Wednesday sealed the multi-billion naira Enugu Park and Shopping Mall.
It was the second time the commission was sealing the mall in 2017.
Operatives of the commission from Abuja headquarters stormed the construction site which is almost due for inauguration and chased away workers.
The incident happened in the morning as workers were settling down for the day’s work.
Head of Public Affairs of EFCC in South East zone, Mr. Chris Oluka, confirmed the raid to Thisday.
He 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.
Oluka recalled that the commission had earlier in the year sealed the mall, which is located beside the Enugu State House of Assembly, by writing the inscription ‘Under EFCC Investigation’.
He lamented that it did not deter the managers, who flagrantly continued with construction work at the site.
