A large number of young persons in Ibadan on Thursday, protested against what they described as incessant illegal arrests by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), in Ibadan, the Oyo State Capital.
The agitating youth marched to the main entrance of the state secretariat, armed with placards containing various inscriptions such as: “End EFCC”, “Being a Youth is not a crime”, “Silence = Death”, “No Killing No Gun, No Violence “, amongst others.
They also took their “End EFCC Protest ” to some media stations in Ibadan to make their grievances known.
One of the protesters, Wale Olusegun who is a real estate consultant, alleged the EFCC of illegal arrest, using illegal search warrants to carry out their operations.
The protesting youths were said to have caused traffic today along Bodija, Agodi, and Total Garden area.
