Olukoyede  Seeks Media Enlightenment of Youths in Fight Against Internet Fraud

 

 

Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede has called for wider media enlightenment of youths across the country on the effects of indulgence in internet fraud.

 

He made the call in Abuja on Monday, December 4, 2023, while receiving a delegation of Daar Communication plc that came on a courtesy visit to the corporate headquarters of the EFCC in Jabi, Abuja.

Olukoyede decried the unsavoury effects of youth’s involvement in internet-related crimes, pointing out that the practice has become a menace and cankerworm in the society.  He called on the media to design programmes aimed at enlightening youths on the evil of the crimes. “ We are looking towards Daar Communications to enlighten our youths on the evils of cyber crimes.  It is worrisome that seven out of ten students today are involved in cyber crimes. These are the youths we are preparing to be leaders of tomorrow. The media should not relent in enlightening them on the evils of such criminal practices”, he said.

 

He commended the management of Daar Communication on its commitment to broadcasting in Nigeria,  pointing out that its impact is real. He also applauded the media outfit for its contributions to the enlightenment campaigns of the EFCC against corrupt practices,  promising that the Commission will continue to partner with it in its continuing public awareness against economic and financial crimes.
