EFCC takes anti-cybercrimes campaign to schools

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has appealed to students of secondary schools not to be involved in cybercrime.

The Acting Commander, Ibadan Zonal Command of EFCC, Halima Mustafa Rufa’u, also urged the school children to speak up whenever they saw crimes being perpetrated in their schools and communities.

Rufau, represented by the Head of Public Affairs Department of the Zonal Command, Olumide Egbodofo, spoke during a pre-Integrity Club inauguration sensitization outreach to selected schools in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Rufa’u, who lamented the high incidence of cybercrime among the youth, said FRSC’s determination to arrest the trend prompted establishment of Integrity Club in primary and secondary schools and Zero Tolerance Club in tertiary institutions as vehicles for value orientation and citizens mobilisation for corrective action against economic and financial crimes.

The FRSC boss said, “The inauguration of these clubs, without doubt, will make you agents of positive change and foot soldiers to preach the sermon of anti-corruption in our society.

“Once the clubs are inaugurated in your schools, you are automatically ambassadors of the EFCC and we expect you to become role models in your schools and communities”, she said.

The zonal commander urged the students to obey their teachers and parents to secure their future.

Schools where similar messages were presented to the students included Oluyole High School, Ibadan; Baptist Secondary School, Oke Ado, Ibadan; and Concord School, Ring Road, Ibadan.
