NANS voiced worries over reports that students are being targeted and recruited to hinder the EFCC's important work in protecting the nation's reputation, honor, and economic stability.

Similarly, the coalition convener, Bashir Babatunde Abdulganiu, vowed to resist miscreants' plans to derail the fight against corruption and President Bola Tinubu's Renewed Hope Agenda.

According to the release, "We have observed the unfortunate situation where some persons under investigation by the anti-graft agency have resorted to blackmail and incitement on social media and elsewhere in an attempt to stoke up negative sentiments against the EFCC in a bid to sway the opinions of Nigerians against the anti-corruption crusade of this administration.

"This is totally unacceptable, and we condemn, in strong terms, all those who are directly or remotely connected with this criminal act, as nothing on earth will stop Mr President and the EFCC from logically prosecuting the fight against corruption, cyber crimes and other financial crimes. The is a just fight and there's no hiding place for culprits under this administration."

NANS also called on parents, guardians, and educational institutions to be aware of these manipulative tactics and appropriately guide their wards.

The student union reaffirmed its unwavering support for the EFCC and its efforts to eradicate corruption and cybercrime.

"Together, we can build a Nigeria that we are proud of, a Nigeria where integrity and justice are the cornerstones of our society," Emonefe added.
