A video from the scene of the incident.

“They stole perfumes from my room, as that is what I sell. I am yet to ascertain how much what they stole is worth but that’s the only thing they stole from my room besides scattering it.”

Toheeb Shittu, a student of the institution who also spoke with FIJ, said that the men broke into the rooms of two female students of the institution.

He stated that the officials took away Adufe Ganiu and Segun Oloyede, two students of the institution, and some who were not students of the school.

“We got a video on our class platform showing that some students’ rooms were broken into around 3 am. Those whose rooms were broken into are ladies. However, they were not around when the break-in happened.

“Some other people who were not students of our institution were also taken away by the officials. Some of them are Sanni Taiwo, Sanni Ayomide and a student of Olabisi Onabanjo University simply identified as Ayomikun.”

Commenting on whether there had been suspicions prior to the break-in, Shittu stated that their had been intelligent information that the officials of the anti-graft agency were trying to gain access into the school environment.

“The school does not provide hostel accommodation for students within, so most of them stay off campus. The hostel that was raided is only some minutes away from the school. And there have been suspicions hovering around the area.

“Another thing is the manners in which the rooms were broken into were similar. They came in through the fence, ceiling, broke the doors, and scattered things.

“We were also told that the police are an accomplice to this, as there had been complaints that students are showing off and living flashy lifestyles.”

FIJ contacted SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the spokesperson of the Ogun State Police Command, but he declined to comment.

EFCC had also not responded to a message sent to them at press time.
