Popular singer, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, better known as Skales has said he and his family now live under perpetual fear following the recent invasion of his residence by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Recall that Skales had weeks ago called out the EFCC for breaking into his house and wrongly accused him of being a fraudster.

Speaking in the latest episode of the Terms & Conditions podcast, Skales said he has been receiving threats since his outburst against the anti-graft agency, stressing that his life is no longer safe.

The ‘Shake Body’ crooner said he is still moving about freely because he is “clean.”

He said his artiste, who was arrested during the raid, is still in custody.

He said, “The EFCC operatives that invaded my house didn’t have a search warrant. Obviously, they were illegal.

“My problem with the EFCC guys is not even the fact that they are not doing what they were paid for.

“They are now using the power to oppress people. They are oppressing me right now. I am scared for my life, I won’t lie to you. I’m scared but at the same time, I know I’m clean, that’s why I’m moving around.”

Skales (an acronym for Seek Knowledge Acquire Large Entrepreneurial Skills), is a Nigerian rapper, singer, and songwriter. In 2000, he started writing rap songs in Kaduna, Nigeria. Between 2007 and 2008, he travelled to Jos to work with Jesse Jagz and Jeremiah Gyang. In 2008, he entered the Zain Tru Search competition and won the competition’s North Central region. His debut single “Must Shine” received numerous spin on the Rhythm FM stations in Lagos, Jos and Abuja.

He later relocated to Lagos and signed a record deal with Empire Mates Entertainment (E.M.E) in 2009.
