You Are Crediting Fake Bank Accounts, EFCC Chairman Tells Families Of Suspects


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has raised the alarm over the illegal use of the name its chairman, Ibrahim Magu, by unidentified individuals to extort money from the public.

A statement from its Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, said it had come to the notice of the commission that some persons claiming to have Mr. Magu’s permission were asking people for payments to secure the release of suspects under investigation.

“Some unsuspecting members of the public have fallen victim of this scam and made huge payments to this syndicate,” Mr. Uwujaren said.

“The commission warns the public to be wary of the activities of these fraudulent individuals who have no relationship whatsoever with Mr. Magu and the EFCC.”

He said the EFCC chairman had not mandated anybody to collect money from individuals and or organisations on his behalf.
