Yahaya Bello: EFCC Reacts To Claims Of Firing At Protesters

Following the news making the rounds that the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) shot at pro-Yahaya Bello protesters on Monday in Abuja, the anti-graft agency has debunked the allegations.

Dele Oyewale, the Commission’s Spokesperson debunked the claims while reacting to a video trending on social media of the alleged attack by the EFCC operatives on protesters.

Speaking with newsmen, the anti-graft agency claimed there was no shooting at any protester at the commission’s headquarters on Monday.


According to him, the operatives only dispersed the protesters who went to the commission’s headquarters to disrupt activities.

”No arrests were made as claimed by the group. Two groups demonstrated at the commission today. The first group came with a letter of commendation in support of the EFCC anti-corruption fight.

”They presented their letter, which was received by the Director of Public Enlightenment Department, Mr Wilson Uwujaren, who promised to deliver their message to the chairman.

”Not quite long after, another group came, these people were violent and destructive, and the men of the commission had to chase them away.

“Nobody was arrested and there was no shoot out,” he said.
