‘EFCC and Army Wahala’: EFCC Warns Skit Makers Against Misrepresenting Its Operatives

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has expressed its displeasure over the unauthorised and irresponsible use of its operational identities by some skit makers and other social media users.

The commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, issued a statement on Wednesday to caution the public against such acts.

The statement was prompted by a video titled “EFCC and Army Wahala” that went viral on social media, depicting the EFCC operatives as violent and abusive towards “suspects”.

The statement described the video as a mockery of the EFCC’s operational etiquette and a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the commission.

“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,” the statement read.

Oyewale warned that the commission will not tolerate the illegal and inappropriate use of its operational identities for any purpose and will take legal action against anyone found culpable.

He urged the public to respect the EFCC’s mandate and cooperate with its efforts to fight corruption in the country.
