EFCC Invades FUTA Students’ Hostel

The operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) allegedly carried out a midnight operation and invaded Students’ lodges at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State.

The raid, which occurred about 2am, propelled some students to take to social media, sharing videos, alleging them of breaking into rooms and arrested some students.

Videos circulating 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!”

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, had in November ordered that sting operations at night be stopped.

He gave this directive after the arrest of suspected internet fraudsters in Ile-Ife, Osun State, by operatives of the EFCC which sparked nationwide outrage.

When contacted, the agency’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, sought for more time to confirm, and has not responded again, at the press time of filing this report.
