The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has warned the general public about roadblocks mounted by unscrupulous elements in search of alleged Yahoo boys.
In a series of tweets, the commission dissociated itself from such activities stating that such is not part of their duty.
#PressRelease Attention of the EFCC has been drawn to activities of some unscrupulous elements, who mount roadblocks at highbrow areas of Lagos – Victoria Island, Lekki & Festac Town, parading themselves as EFCC operatives to extort money from alleged internet fraudsters. #Thread
For the avoidance of doubt, it is not part of the EFCC’s operational practice to mount roadblocks, neither does it engage any agent(s) to do so on its behalf. EFCC operatives stick to standard procedures, which conform with the global best practices.
The commission also warned against a certain DSP who parades himself as acting on orders of the EFCC acting chairman.
The EFCC also warns the public against antics of one DSP Dorcas Bukola, who claims to be acting on behalf of the EFCC Chair, Ibrahim Magu, and sending out invitation letters via firstname.lastname@example.org; Such letters should be dismissed as they didn’t emanate from the Commission.
