South East: EFCC Raises Concerns Over Surge In Cyber Crimes



We're Currently Not Recruiting - EFCC Warns Applicants Against Fraudsters

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) raised serious concerns concerning the rising number of cybercrimes and land fraud cases in Nigeria’s southeast.

News About Nigeria gathered that these concerns were brought up by Aliyu Naibi, the EFCC’s Enugu Zonal Commander, during a road walk in Enugu on International Anti-Corruption Day.

Naibi noted that land fraud is becoming a major problem that is hurting investments in the area.

He disclosed that the EFCC has taken action against this issue, but that the people and the government of the area must take the initiative to end it once and for all.

In addition to pointing out the rise in cybercrime activities, particularly among the youth, Naibi said that reports of land-related fraud are received almost daily, posing a significant challenge to the region.

He urged stakeholders, including community leaders, religious leaders, traditional rulers, and the state government, to unite against these trends.

Naibi called for joint action to increase awareness and curb the harmful repercussions of corruption on the region’s economic prospects, emphasising that land fraud is economic sabotage that discourages potential investors.

The purpose of the anti-corruption road walk was to increase public awareness of the negative impacts of corruption.

In his speech, Naibi, speaking on behalf of Ola Olukoyede, the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, urged anti-corruption stakeholders to band together and support the commission’s efforts to break the nation’s corruption chain.

He stressed the need to create an atmosphere that is favourable for job creation, investment, and enhanced international image.

He emphasized the commission’s commitment to teamwork, professionalism, and strict adherence to the rule of law in its actions.
