The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission strongly criticized the unauthorised use of its operational identities and cautioned skit makers and others in the social sphere against engaging in such actions.
Dele Oyewale, the commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, communicated this message in a statement released on Wednesday.
According to the statement, a video titled “EFCC and Army Wahala” gaining traction on social media compelled the EFCC to reiterate its warning to skit makers and others to desist from using the operational identities of the commission illegally and irresponsibly.
The statement read, “‘EFCC and Army Wahala’ is a caricature of the operational etiquette of the EFCC. The shameful characterisation 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.”
Oyewale emphasized that the commission is prepared to take action against anyone found using its operational identities for any purpose.
