Sharing is caring!

Ondo State Governor, Hon Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, has met with owners of night clubs in Akure following the raid by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the weekend.

Owners of night clubs and hotels affected by the raid gave the accounts of how their facilities were vandalised by officers of the anti-graft agency where they arrested some suspected internet fraudsters in the early hours of Saturday in Akure.

The EFCC had stated that its operatives, acting on intelligence reports, stormed the outlets to effect the arrest of 127 people allegedly holding ‘Yahoo Parties’ and those who had been on the radar of the Commission.

Addressing the club owners at the meeting held at the Government House, Governor Aiyedatiwa sympathised with them on the damages done to their facilities and loss of revenue.

The Governor urged them to compile record of all damaged facilities during the raid for onward presentation to the appropriate authorities.

Governor Aiyedatiwa, however, said innocent people affected by the operation should seek redress while those who have cases to answer should be allowed to defend themselves.

The club owners, who thanked the Governor for the timely meeting, said they were not part of those planning to hold a protest over the incident.
