Ola Olukoyede, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has advised Nigerian youths to stop engaging in cybercrime and other forms of criminality.

Olukayode in a post on the EFCC’s official page, made this call in Benin City, Edo State while speaking on a programme ‘Youth Empowerment Against Cybercrime” organised by Cybersecurity Education Initiatives, CYSED.

The EFCC boss who was represented by Williams Oseghale, Head of the Public Affairs Department, Benin Zonal Command warned the youths to stay away from cybercrime as the consequences were dreadful.

He stated that the anti-corruption agency will go after offenders and they will be stripped of their illegally acquired properties when caught.

He said, “Don’t be tempted or lured by the ostentatious lifestyle of other youths because the Commission will continue to arrest and prosecute anyone that is involved.

“In the last few years, the Commission has secured thousands of convictions of persons involved in cybercrime, many have been stripped of their illegally acquired properties. So they have ended in shame. There is no escape route for those involved in cybercrime.”


He stated that there was no shortcut to wealth and urged the youths to use the internet to innovate and create positive economic growth.

“The internet does not necessarily have to be an avenue to impersonate, manipulate and fabricate lies to defraud others. Let the youths begin to use the internet for socially desirable things like offering digital solutions to the needs of industries, homes, governments and other engagement of life.”
