The incident followed a midnight raid by EFCC operatives from the Ibadan Zonal office on hostels around the Owode-Ede area. Some students were apprehended during the operation and taken to the Ibadan zonal office for questioning.

However, the polytechnic management, through its Public Relations Officer, Sola Lawal, clarified that the identities of the arrested students were yet to be confirmed.

According to witnesses, the protesters launched stones at several structures, particularly targeting the staff club, and inflicted damage on vehicles parked in the vicinity.

Confirming the incident, the institution’s spokesperson, Sola Lawal, condemned the act of vandalism, particularly the destruction of staff vehicles at the staff club.

Lawal also issued a stern warning against any attempts to disrupt the ongoing first-semester examinations, stating that the management would take decisive action against any students found disturbing the peace and order of the institution.
