The coalition, headed by spokesperson Yinka Junaid, has taken a firm stand, insisting that the EFCC not only removes all traces of their children's identities from its records but also issues a public apology for what they perceive as an unwarranted clampdown on their wards.

According to Junaid, this concerted effort is rooted in the parents' unwavering commitment to safeguarding the rights of their children and ensuring the protection of their future.

The coalition expects a formal announcement regarding the removal of their children's names from the EFCC's records, coupled with a subsequent issuance of a public apology.

“To this end, we expect the announcement of the removal of their (children’s) names followed by the issuance of the public apology, and this must be advertised in leading national newspapers and circulated on all EFCC social media handles, websites and all news agencies in the country.

“We also called on the agency to conclude investigations on students who have been released, and whose devices, including academic tools, are still being held.

“We call on the EFCC to release and clear our children on whom nothing has been found unconditionally and without delay. We demand that the anti-graft agency expunge their names, pictures, identities and biometrics and everything about them from all EFCC records and all social media platforms.”

They also urged the judiciary to do due diligence on the arraignment of the 11 students.
