The ‘Alliance for Emancipation and True Change’ organized a peaceful protest in the United Kingdom, drawing attention to what they perceive as biased actions by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The protest saw a significant turnout, with participants donning banners and placards that called for fairness and justice. The gathering took place in a prominent area, attracting the attention of both local and international media.

Among the key figures present were Dr. Shaibu Ojogbane, the alliance’s publicity secretary, and Chukwunonso Ezeani, the director of research. Dr. Ojogbane delivered a compelling speech, emphasizing the alliance’s dissatisfaction with the EFCC’s handling of Yahaya Bello’s case. He stressed that the commission’s actions appeared selective and politically motivated, undermining the integrity of their operations. Echoing similar sentiments, Chukwunonso Ezeani highlighted the necessity for the EFCC to adhere to constitutional procedures and avoid media trials that could prejudice public opinion.

The primary demand of the protesters was a direct appeal to President Bola Tinubu, urging him to ensure that the EFCC conducts its investigations impartially. They called for an immediate review of the commission’s practices to prevent any form of bias or selective prosecution. The group insisted that the EFCC’s mandate should be executed without favoritism, protecting the rights of all individuals involved.

The protesters also criticized the EFCC’s current modus operandi, pointing out concerns regarding their methods of operation. They argued that media trials and the politicization of the commission’s activities not only breach constitutional rights but also erode public trust in the institution. The alliance’s representatives underscored the importance of maintaining the EFCC’s credibility, advocating for transparency and accountability in all their undertakings.

Coinciding with this protest was a counter-demonstration, which, according to the protesting alliance, was allegedly sponsored by the opposition in Kogi State. This counter-demonstration also took place in London and was purportedly orchestrated by supporters of Murtala Ajaka, the opposition candidate in the upcoming November 2023 gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
