EFCC debunks joint operation with NDLEA at Kwara hostels

CITIZENS COMPASS —The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Friday, February 23, 2024, debunked an an online report about its purported operation with the National Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), at Kwara State University Hostels.”

The operatives debunked this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Dele Oyewale. 

It reads, “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the public about a false story published by an online news platform, Sahara Reporters and headlined: “BREAKING: Operatives of Anti-Graft Agency, EFCC,  NDLEA Shoot At Students During Raid on Kwara State University Hostels”

“The said report was fabricated as 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.

 “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.”
