"Stop Embarrassing Us" – EFCC Warns Skit Makers

The Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has warned comedians against using the Commission’s operational identities to create video clips.

According to a statement issued on Wednesday by the Commission’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dele Oyewale, some skit-makers and other social workers make caricatures of the EFCC’s operational etiquette.

EFCC Responds To Skit Video

The Commission was specifically responding to a viral skit titled “EFCC and Army Wahala.” It claimed that the video’s shameful portrayal of alleged Commission operatives was humiliating.


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.
