After Arresting Fake Whistleblowers, EFCC Releases Useful Information On How To Rightly 'WhistleBlow' (Details)

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is lecturing Nigerians on how to be successful whistleblowers.

The lecture may have become necessary following the recent arrest of some Nigerians considered to have given fake information to the anti-graft agency concerning alleged corruption among former public office holders.
According to the EFCC, some of the infractions that can be reported include violation of government financial regulations, mismanagement and misappropriation of public funds and assets, information on stolen or concealed public funds.

Some other infractions include; theft, collecting and soliciting bribes.

The anti-graft agency also gave prospective whistleblowers two ways they could report such claims to it.

NAIJ recently reported that mixed reactions were trailing the decision of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to place two social media activists under watch for allegedly spreading misleading information.

The anti-graft agency in a Facebook post on Friday, July 14, accused Innocent Onyekachi Oritsetimetin, Akpotedja Adjenugure and Adeola Sam Opeyemi of peddling false information about a $42 million found in the farm of the PDP national chairman, Ahmed Makarfi, by the EFCC, less than 2 hours after the Supreme Court judgement on Wednesday which sacked Ali Modu Sheriff as the party’s chairman.
