Hundreds of youths on Thursday staged a protest calling for the scrapping of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The youths, who marched to the frontage of the Oyo State Government Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan expressed displeasure with the conduct of the anti-graft agency, saying its activities have always been an assault on innocent youths.

The youths, who arrived at the Secretariat frontage in a convoy of over 20 vehicles with various banners, also carried placards and sang solidarity songs.

They barricaded the entrance to the secretariat, making visitors and others stranded for several hours.

The protest also led to heavy traffic gridlock along Bodija, Parliament Road and Total Garden roads among other areas in the axis.

Some of the youths, in their 20s and 30s, accused EFCC of carrying out Illegal house search and arrests in their operations, thereby calling for the review and reform of the agency’s activities.

One of the protesters, Samuel, said they are agitating against indiscriminate arrest by the EFCC who many times accuse them of being fraudsters.

Samuel, who said he is an engineer also into real estate, lamented that on several occasions he has been pounced on by EFCC officials, accusing him of being into fraud.

He said: “We are not asking them not to do their job but they should do it according to the law. They burst people, collect their phones and search it through. What kind of thing is that?”
