Must read

Men suspected to be operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Wednesday, allegedly carried out a midnight operation at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State and arrested some students.

The EFCC reportedly invaded the Students’ lodges in the early hours of Wednesday, at about 2am.

Some students who took to social media, while sharing videos alleged that the operatives of the EFCC broke into rooms and arrested some students.

The recent trending videos on social media show broken window frames from what is believed to be an attempt at forced entry.

One social media user named J Brandy wrote, “I thought they said EFCC should not raid at nights again. This hostel (Celebrity Lodge, FUTA ) is right behind mine. When will this endemic? EFCC (officials) moving like thieves at night!”

A man wearing the EFCC jacket was seen in one of the videos circulating online.

The Chairman of the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, in November, after the arrest of suspected internet fraudsters in Ile-Ife, Osun State, by his men which sparked nationwide outrage, ordered that sting operations at night be stopped.

When the agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, was contacted on the matter on Wednesday, he asked to be called back in 20 minutes.

He hasn’t taken his calls again as of the time of this report.
