By Emmanuel Udom


CITIZENS COMPASS —The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reiterated its warning to skit makers and other social media users to desist from using the operational identities of the Commission illegally and irresponsibly.

Spokesperson for the Agency, Dele Oyewale, disclosed this in a statement, on Wednesday, November 15, 2023. 

Spokesperson for Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Dele Oyewale, disclosed this on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, in a press statement. He was reacting to a video titled, “EFCC” and “Army Wahala”, gaining traction on social media. 

According to him, “Army Wahala” is a caricature of the operational etiquette of the EFCC.  

The shameful characterization of supposed operatives of the Commission in the video unleashing terror on “suspects”, is not only embarrassing but indicative of deliberate attempt to cast shadows on the image of the EFCC.

“Operatives of the EFCC are not bullies.  They are trained as refined modern law enforcement officers rich in decency, civility and respect for members of the public, including suspects of economic and financial crimes.

Skit makers are warned again to desist from unauthorized use of the identities of the EFCC to ply their trade.  

” The Commission will not hesitate to bring to book anyone caught displaying its operational identities for any engagement.
