Three students were allegedly shot when personnel of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) stormed Federal College of Forestry of Nigeria (FCFN), Ibadan, Oyo State, to make arrest of suspects.
A source said the EFCC personnel entered the school premises and had a meeting with the management of the Institute before proceeding to make the arrest.
The source added that commotion ensued when the anti-corruption agency’s operatives proceeded to make the arrest within the college.
“The students came out in solidarity with their colleagues. While the issue was being sorted out by the FCFN management, a back-up team came and began shooting sporadically. I understand that three students sustained gunshot injuries and were taken to hospital,” said the source, who is a staff of the college.
When contacted, the spokesman EFCC, Dele Oyewale, said he was gathering information on what happened and would make an official statement as soon as he was through.
“I am on top of it. I will send a statement to you as soon as I am through with gathering information on the issue,” Oyewale stated.
