EFCC Sensitizes Students Ahead of Integrity Club Launch in Ibadan


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has appealed to secondary school students in Oyo State not to be involved in cybercrime and to speak up whenever they see crimes being perpetrated in their schools and communities. ACE I Halima Mustafa Rufa’u, Ag. Commander of the Ibadan Zonal  Command of  the Commission, made the appeal today, July 5, during a pre-Integrity Club inauguration sensitization outreach to selected schools in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

At Oluyole High School, Ibadan, Rufa’u who spoke through the Head of Public Affairs Department of the Zonal Command, DSE Egbodofo Olumide lamented the high incidence of cybercrime among the youth. She said the Commission’s determination to arrest this trend informed the decision to establish 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 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 inauguration  in your school, 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.

Similar messages were presented to the students of Baptist Secondary School, Oke-ado, Ibadan and Concord School, Ring Road, Ibadan, through the Head of the Extractive Industry Fraud Section of the Command, ACE II Olusegun Oloruntuyi and Head, Counter Terrorism and General Investigation Section, CSE Juliet Odogwu.
