EFCC disowns lawyer who claims he resigned from the agency to join #EndSARS protest


EFCC disowns lawyer who claims he resigned from the agency to join #EndSARS protest

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to a report trending in the social media regarding a certain Dominic Akpan, who claims to have resigned from the employ of the Commission to join the #EndSARS movement.

He had cited undisclosed “ugly experiences” he had within the Commission for his action.

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 #EndSARS 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.

The EFCC therefore urges members of the public to disregard the report, in addition to the one which also claims that the Commission’s website had been hacked. Though there were attempts, over the weekend, to compromise the website by some cyber criminals the attacks were successfully repelled.
