EFCC Denies Shooting Allegations at Kwara State University Operation

In an official communiqué by Dele Oyewale, the Commission’s Media & Publicity chief, and published on the EFCC’s social media platforms, the agency clarified that no student was shot during the operation.

The EFCC labeled the shooting narrative circulated by a digital news outlet as untrue.

According to the statement, “The report in question is entirely unfounded, as the Ilorin Zonal Office of the EFCC did not conduct any visit to Kwara State University on Thursday, February 22, 2024, nor did it undertake any collaborative mission with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).

“The Commission’s sole activity near the time in question took place a day prior, resulting in the detention of 48 Kwara State University students. This action was executed with precision and professionalism, entirely without any mishaps. Furthermore, no other organization participated alongside the EFCC in this endeavor.

“The general public is advised to exercise caution regarding unsubstantiated narratives aimed at discrediting the EFCC’s efforts or fostering animosity towards the agency.

“The EFCC continues to be dedicated to its foundational goal of eradicating all variants of economic and financial delinquency within Nigeria, undeterred by attempts at defamation.”
