EFCC Denies Operation Against Students at KWASU

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has refuted a report(Not by Concise News) with the headlined: “BREAKING: Operatives of Anti-Graft Agency, EFCC, NDLEA Shoot At Students During Raid on Kwara State University Hostels”.

The EFCC described the report as fabricated, adding that the operatives of the Ilorin Zonal Command of the EFCC neither visited Kwara State University on Thursday, February 22, 2024, nor had any joint operation with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Head, Media & Publicity, Dele Oyewale.

The statement read in part, “The only operation by the Commission happened a day earlier and involved the arrest of 48 students of Kwara State University. It was a well-coordinated and professional exercise devoid of any incident. And no other agency was involved in the operation.

“The public is enjoined to be wary of fabricated stories designed to mislead the public about the works of the EFCC or incite the people against the Commission.

“EFCC remains focused, un-fazed by blackmail and totally committed to its mandate of tackling all forms of economic and financial crimes in Nigeria.”

Concise News also reported that the NDLEA denied carrying out any operation at KWASU.
