Cyber Crime: EFCC Tasks Parents on Watchdog Role
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has identified the lackadaisical attitude of parents as major cause of cyber crimes, otherwise known as “yahoo-yahoo” in the country.
The Ibadan zonal head of the EFCC, Mr. Friday Ibelo, made the assertion while featuring on a Gold FM special programme.
Mr. Ibelo warned those who indulge in such act to desist as the commission would ensure that all perpetrators are brought to book.
He said the commission was making a laudable progress in the discharge of its duty and would not relent to ensure the country was free from every form of financial crimes.
Refuting the claims that EFCC was a political tool being used to instill fear in the minds of opposition party members, the EFCC zonal head described such opinion as a means by perpetrators to derail the commission from carrying out its operation.
Mr. Ibelo called on all stakeholders to rally round the commission in a bid to eradicate financial crimes in the country.
