EFCC Reacts: Fani-Kayode Didn't Collapse In Our Custody

Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, have debunked reports by Femi Fani-Kayode's media aide, Jude Ndukwe, that the former spokesman of Goodluck Jonathan’s Campaign Group, Mr Femi Fani- Kayode, slumped yesterday at their premises.

In a quick rebuttal, EFCC dismissed Ndukwe’s claims, saying there was no truth whatsoever to them. The spokesman for EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren said: 
“There is no truth whatsoever in the dubious and attention-seeking alarm that Fani-Kayode slumped and was revived by EFCC medical personnel. There was nothing like that as the said Fani-Kayode and Obanikoro sat together and enjoyed their jokes at the first round of checks of inmates in EFCC custody on Monday night."

She said that improving power supply was the corner stone of the current administration’s goal towards economic development, yet finding it difficult to get support from western community.

UNILAG Student Who's Rusticated Speaks: My Life In Danger

A 400level student of the University of Lagos, who was rusticated over a Facebook post, Olorunfemi Adeyeye, talks about issues raised by the authorities of the varsity in a statement and his recent arrest on the premises of the university with The Punch's Gbenga Adeniji. Except:

We learnt that you were recently arrested by security operatives on the premises of the University of Lagos. What really happened?

It was a minor issue which was blown out of proportion. I and three of my friends were discussing and moving towards the school. At the small exit gate of the university’s main gate, I was exchanging a contact with one of them from my phone. We were moving at a slow pace and one of the security officers told us not to loiter in an unruly manner. I nodded at him to show my acceptance of his order and also pleaded with him to be patient with us as we were almost through with the contact exchange.

To our surprise, the officer replied by launching into a verbal attack. He called my friend unprintable names. They started exchanging words. The officer manhandled him and this left my friend with a scratch on his body. It later resulted into a heated argument and noticing the gathering of students to the scene, I and my other two friends advised that we should move to the security unit to resolve the matter amicably.
