Stemming the tide of cybercrimes in secondary schools in Nigeria, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has warned secondary school students in Oyo State to stare clear of such crimes. Speaking recently, the Acting Commander of the Ibadan Zonal Command of the commission, ACE I Halima Mustafa Rufa’u, made the appeal during a pre- Integrity Club inauguration Sensitization outreach to selected schools in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The commission also warned the students to speak out whenever they see crimes being perpetrated in schools and communities.
Commenting on the high incidence of cybercrime among the youth, Rufa’u, who spoke through the Head of Public Affairs Department of the zonal command, DSE Egbodofo Olumide, in another secondary school in the state, says the commission is determined to arrest the trend, adding it established Integrity Club in primary and secondary schools.
The commission also disclosed that it established Zero Tolerance Club in tertiary institutions as a vehicle for value orientation and citizens mobilization for corrective actions against economic and financial crimes.
She said, “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 inaugurated 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.
