The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has denied allegations that it harassed and interrupted academic activities at Rochas Foundation College, Owerri, Imo State.
EFCC operatives from the Enugu Zonal Office had visited the school on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.
A statement issued by the commission reads, “The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, wishes to state that on July 23, 2019 when its operatives from the Enugu Zonal Office visited the Rochas Foundation College, Owerri, Imo State, that there was no harassment of any students, teachers or staff of the College and that the school was not in session as students were on vacation.
“We restate that the College was not in session as students were on vacation when the operatives visited to carry out the exercise, and that no one was harassed.
The Commission has documented evidence in video and pictures to back up this position.
“These clarifications become necessary in view of the mounting falsehood being put out to the public that operatives of the Commission raided the College while it was in session and shut its students out.
“While the Commission will not allow itself to be distracted in carrying out its mandate, it is necessary to once again state that its operations are guided by global best practices and standards.”
