A yet-to-be-ascertained number of students of the Federal University of Technology, Akure have been arrested by officials of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), in a midnight raid of hostels outside the campus on Wednesday.

It is reported that the operatives stormed students lodges around Orita Obele, Road block at about 2am, broke into rooms and arrested the students. It was gathered that many of the students first thought the anti-graft agency operatives were kidnappers until much later, when they found that they were EFCC officials.

They were said to be from the Benin Zonal office of the commission. “The officials did not only destroy our properties, most of the students arrested were assaulted and brutalized. Even female students were assaulted in Adonai lodge, Celebrity lodge, Peace apartment and others in Orita Obele,” a source said
