A prominent hospitality establishment, Bintoo Hotel Limited, has said it might seek a legal redress over the invasion of its premises recently by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

It was gathered recently, operatives of the anti-money laundering agency allegedly stormed Bintoo Hotel in Sagamu, Ogun State, creating panic among employees and customers of the facility.

In a statement, the firm expressed shock over the “unauthorized nighttime raid,” because it is a responsible corporate citizen.

In the disclosure issued on Thursday, Bintoo Hotel described the unfortunate incident “as the infringement of guests’ fundamental rights and significant damage to property estimated to be worth millions of naira.”

It assured the public that a comprehensive investigation into the matter was underway as the EFCC Chairman, Ola Olukoyode, has ordered a stop to night raids by men of the agency.

Bintoo Hotel has vowed to rectify any lapses and make amends for any damages resulting from the unfortunate occurrence.

In an effort to reassure patrons and stakeholders, the hotel management affirmed that its operations would continue without interruption, pledging “to implement enhanced security measures aimed at preventing similar incidents from occurring in the future, thereby safeguarding the welfare and interests of all clientele.”
