The city of Osogbo in Osun State goes on a stand still as tired youths who has had enough of the harassments of some operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ( EFCC ) took to the streets to protest and air their dissatisfaction with the
forceful way with which operatives of the EFCC carryout their activities.

 

 

The protest is said to have been instigated by a midnight raid carried out on an estate named Adetunji Estate by operatives of the EFCC on the homes of some youths suspected to be fraudsters, living in the estate. The reports going round said they carried out the operation with burgling tactics and arrested some youths living in the estate while others fled for safety. They also impounded the cars they saw at the estate. On the verge of towing away the exotic cars and taking the arrested suspects to their office for questioning, they met a mob of protesting youths who forced them to run for safety abandoning the arrested suspects and the impounded cars.

The youths set born fires into the morning and carried the protest to the capital city of Osogbo where they were joined by other youths who have also had enough of the unprofessional way with which operatives of the EFCC go about their duties.

 

 

My take on this. What led to the #ENDSARS protest that held the nation on a stand still on October 2020 is not far from this. Misuse of power and abuse of office. The EFCC officials are misusing their power and abusing their office. Soon, no one will have respect for the purpose of which the institution was established. Nigerians are already doubting their effectiveness at fighting financial crimes as they are yet to prosecute their former boss Ibrahim Magu who was suspended from office for fraud relating to diversion of recovered funds and seized assets.

 

 

Fine, they have been effective at arresting internet fraudsters and cutting the rate at which cyber crimes are commited over the Nigerian cyber space, but their ways of raiding homes at midnight with a burgling tactic is out of the board and unprofessional. In the civilised climes they conduct proper investigations. If they have gathered all the evidence they require to arest a suspect, they visit them with warrants and go about their activities without creating a scene. Thats the way to go if we are to get this right, not the stop and search that some of them are reported to be doing in Osun state with which they have been reported to forcefully use and detain some cars.
