EFCC Raids Enugu Hotel, Disperse Attendees at Youth Conference

Armed EFCC operatives allegedly left several people injured after opening fire to disperse a youth conference and arrests guests during an overnight raid of a hotel in Enugu.

It was gathered that operatives of the anti-graft agency stormed the meeting venue of the National Youth Council of Nigeria and the National Association of Nigerian Students.

Men of the EFCC from the anti-graft department’s field office in Enugu allegedly fired teargas, broke into rooms without apparent warrants and arrested several guests before disrupting a youth gathering that was underway at the hotel’s conference room. At least 40 guests were feared driven away by operatives, who reportedly arrived in five unregistered vehicles, including two Toyota Hilux buses. This was reported by a Twitter user Ike Oraifite between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m Friday morning.

The hotel proprietor was reportedly beaten by the agents who went on to forcibly collect master access to all rooms in the hotel, subsequently breaking in on sleeping guests with little regard for their privacy. 
Some people were injured as they scampered for safety after officers fired into the air and used teargas upon arrival. None of the injuries came from gunshots, witnesses said.
