EFCC knocks SaharaReporters over fake news on KWASU operations



EFCC constitute task force to save Naira

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to alert the public about a false story published by an online news platform, SaharaReporters and headlined: “BREAKING: Operatives of Anti-Graft Agency, EFCC, NDLEA Shoot At Students During Raid on Kwara State University Hostels”

The said report was fabricated as the Operatives of the Ilorin Zonal Command of EFCC neither visited Kwara State University on Thursday, February 22, 2024, nor had any joint operation with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.

The only operation by the Commission happened a day earlier and involved the arrest of 48 students of Kwara State University. It was a well-coordinated and professional exercise devoid of any incident. And no other agency was involved in the operation.

The public is enjoined to be wary of fabricated stories designed to mislead the public about the works of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission or incite the people against the Commission.

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission remains focused, un-fazed by blackmail and totally committed to its mandate of tackling all forms of economic and financial crimes in Nigeria.
