The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission is forced to repeat its warning to skit creators and other social workers to refrain from using the operational identities of the Commission illegally and irresponsibly due to a video code-named “EFCC and Army Wahala” that is gaining popularity on social media.
“EFCC and Army Wahala” is a parody of the EFCC’s protocol in action. In addition to being embarrassing, the deplorable portrayal of purported EFCC agents in the film terrorising “suspects” is symptomatic of a concerted effort to damage the organization’s reputation.
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 engagements.
