‘Stop embarrassing us’ – EFCC warns skit makers


The Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has warned skit-makers against using the Commission’s operational identities to make video clips.


A statement issued on Wednesday by the Commission’s Head of media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, lamented how some skit-makers and other social workers make caricatures of the operational etiquette of the EFCC.


The Commission was reacting specifically to a viral skit titled, ‘EFCC and Army Wahala’. It said that the shameful characterization of supposed operatives of the Commission in the video was embarrassing.


Oyewale said, “The shameful characterization of supposed operatives of the Commission in the video unleashing terror on “suspects” is not only embarrassing but indicative of a deliberate attempt to cast shadows on the image of the EFCC.”


He explained that contrary to what the video portrayed, operatives of the Commission 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 engagement,” the statement added.
