EFCC Storms IMSU Alliances - Arrests Suspects, Carts Away Cars

Earlier today operatives of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed Flora and Faith Villas in Okwu-Uratta Students' Alliance (OSA), Okwu-Uratta Community of Imo State University, Owerri and arrested about 10 suspects, Duru Victor confirms.

Sources claim the swoop by the men of the EFCC took place in the wee hours of the day, around 4:00am. Men of the EFCC were reported to have carted away with some cars (Benz) belonging to some of the suspects while rounding-up about 10 suspects.

Reacting to the operation, the President of Okwu-Uratta Students' Alliance (OSA) Comr. Precious Godwin aka Dr. Lens has frowned at the incident and actions by the men of the EFCC.

In a statement made to Correspondent Duru Victor when contacted, he accused the EFCC of intimidation and infringing on the fundamental human rights of the students who are only going about their normal businesses.

He called on the state government and the state police to look into the matter and ensure that the innocent students are returned to their lodges and hostels in one piece.

In a similar vein and in commando-like fashion men of the EFCC also stormed Bishop's Court and Aladinma alliances for suspected "Yahoo boys and 419ers".

As of the time of filing this report the arrested students haven't been returned to their lodges.
