THIS IS NOT KIDDING! Student protests at FUTA following the EFCC night raid

Posted by

Students at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, or FUTA, have denounced the raid that members of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC, conducted early on Wednesday morning at their off-campus residences.

At around two in the morning, the anti-graft officials overran the Road Block axis in Orita Obele, the capital of Ondo State, Akure.

The kids said that when the EFCC agents barged into their dormitories, they initially believed they were kidnappers.

The EFCC conducted raids at a number of lodges, including Peace Apartment, Adonai Lodge, and Celebrity Lodge.

The FUTA Student Union denounced the raid, pointing out that it was conducted at midnight.

Oluwasoromidayo Olayemi, President of the FUTA Students Union, told the Daily Post:

We apologize to notify you of an unpleasant occurrence that occurred in the off-campus community of our school. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) agents broke into over three school lodges in the South Gate community at three in the morning on February 14, 2024, and unlawfully arrested our students, destroyed property, sexually assaulted a female student, and cruelly injured some other students.

The timing of the raid, he pointed out, ran counter to an earlier order from the EFCC chairman dated November 1, 2023, which stated that “sting operations at night be stopped in all the Commands of the EFCC.”
