The Economy and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has arrested some of the Enugu youths leaders in Enugu state Thursday night 16th of September 2021 at about 9pm where they were having youthful meetings.
Enugu State National Association of Nigerian Student (NANS) Chairman Comrade Romanus Ogene noted that;
“This is to bring to the notice of all Nigerian students that EFCC raided the venue of the Southeast Youth leaders meeting, tear-gassed the venue while shooting sporadically, beat up and made away with some of the youth leaders including our own leader Darl Ugwuegbe Ugwuegbe the Deputy Coordinator of NANS Zone B.
Romanus stated that EFCC is an intelligence agency that ought to arrest people on the basis of reliable intelligence and not just random raiding of innocent citizens.
Though, this is just one of the many recent raiding and intimidation of innocent young persons done by the EFFC in Enugu. This is an affront on human rights and injustice to one is injustice to all.
Few days ago, one lodge was raided beside Unec, even a 19years old boy was also arrested.
The question is why EFCC not go after real Yahoo boys, which are the Governor’s, top government functionaries, VC and Rector of Universities, CMD and directors of hospitals. Why not go after them, and parade them as well.
Nigerian students will march along with other youths of Enugu State to demand for an End to the intimidation of innocent youths by EFCC.
