EFCC Denies Claim Its Official Quit To Join #EndSARS Movement

EFCC Denies Claim Its Official Quit To Join #EndSARS Movemen

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has debunked a rumour that was been circulated that one of its officers resigned from the agency to join the ongoing protest against police brutality and bad governance.

A rumour circulated on social media claims that one Dominic Akpan, an alleged officer of the agency, claimed that he left the agency to protest against police brutality owing to the ugly experiences he had in EFCC.

However, in a statement, EFCC spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, said that the claim was untrue as Akpan was not even a staff of the commission.

He said, “The EFCC wishes to inform the public that Akpan is not a staff of the Commission.

“He merely served as a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member in the Port Harcourt zonal office of the Commission from November 2019 to October 16, 2020, when he completed his national service.

“He, therefore, could not have resigned from the EFCC to join the #End SARS Movement.

“The stunt by Akpan is nothing but crass opportunism. And, seeking to achieve his selfish objectives riding on the crest of the popular protests by the youth, clamouring for institutional reform in Nigeria, is a disservice to the EndSARS Movement.”
