Protest In Ondo Over EFCC Invasion Of Night Clubs

Residents of Akure, the Capital of Ondo on Monday morning hit the streets in massive numbers to protest the brutality of the alleged innocent clubbers on Saturday by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Gatekeepers News reports that the protesters converged on First Bank Roundabout at 7 am and walked through A’ Division through NEPA and to the Governor’s office.

Recall that operatives of EFCC had invaded Alba Royale Club and Signatures Club around 1:00 am on Saturday and arrested a bride-groom-to-be with some of his well-wishers while holding the Bachelor’s Eve in one of the clubs.

The anti-graft agency’s Zonal Directorate in Ibsdam had claimed that it arrested 127 persons who were suspected internet fraudsters.

One of the protesters, Oluwaseun Ogunmola, however, told journalists during the protest that the raid by EFCC officials was because the clubbers disobeyed its ban on night operation and called for their release.

Another protester, Tobi Akinnubi lamented “In Nigeria now, youths cannot use phone, laptop, they can’t drive cars because EFCC sees them as fraudsters.”

“Our ladies who have been taken away, do they commit any offence? This is purely brutality. Enough is enough and we must put an end to this.”

“We demand justice on this actions, the Federal Government should please look into this case because we can’t continue like this.”
