Students Protest EFCC’s Campus Invasion in Ibadan, Nigeria

by Ikem Emmanuel

In an unexpected turn of events, students of the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria in Ibadan, Oyo State, organized a peaceful protest on Tuesday in response to the campus being invaded by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The students took to the streets and effectively blocked all the roads leading to their campus, causing significant traffic congestion on the well-known Alesinloye by-pass and surrounding routes. This disruption, in turn, led to the suspension of academic and other activities within the institution.

A student, who chose to remain anonymous, shared their concerns, stating, “One of our colleagues was hit by a stray bullet, though he did not die. We don’t know their mission on our campus, and we asked them, but instead of explaining to us, they started threatening us with their guns.”

Efforts to reach the Head of the Public Affairs Department of the EFCC, Ibadan Zonal Command, Olumide Egbodofo, were unsuccessful as his mobile number was switched off at the time of reporting.

This unexpected clash between students and EFCC operatives has raised questions about the reasons for the EFCC’s presence on the campus and the need for transparency in such operations. The protest reflects the concerns of the students and the impact on their daily activities. Further information is awaited to shed light on the circumstances leading to the EFCC’s campus visit and the resolution of the situation.
