According to the EFCC, seventeen (17) of the suspects were arrested in Awka, Anambra State while 11 others were arrested in Enugu, Enugu State, following actionable intelligence on their alleged involvement in internet fraud. 

Some of the comments on the EFCC page by some of those who took Their time to respond to the latest arrest made by the body include:

#EndSARS will be a joke compared to what is coming because your unprofessional and highly unlawful conducts has become a course of worry for every right thinking person.

Stop invading peoples privacy!

Do investigation first!

Arraign the Criminals in Aso Rock!

Stop victimizing Southern Youths!

And stop selective so called corruption fight!


Good morning
Is this commission aware of the recent tactics your men on the field are using recently?...
Breaking down someone's door early in the morning in search of Yahoo boys in truly absurd and unprofessional..why not gather enough Intel before going for an arrest ...young Nigerians now can't sleep properly because of cultist,armed robbers, Fulani herdsmen and now EFCC..

The clock ⏰ is ticking small small, they have just started from where SARS stopped, they now burst ppl houses, hotels $ bars, stop and search ppl phones on the road, Hmmmm...Okay ooo, we will see how it goes since they have started bringing them self so low to the extend of mountain road blocks just to get boys arrested. They should be more concerned with the insecurity that is going on in the country if they know what they’re doing. Hungry ppl everywhere

It is not good to envy someone on social media or tapping from blessings you know nothing about. They will be oppressing people with legit hustle up and down.🙅. This is just the beginning. Prophet TB Joshua before he died said: Whatever ILLEGAL means of making money would go away be it Politicians and others. He said Nature has started this judgement somewhere. If not now, Judgement would definitely knock at their door, it's coming to them. Only genuine hustle would last, don't give up on your real hustle. Nature is fighting back. Few months after that prophecy, Hushpuppy was arrested.

He scales over people's fences embarrassing innocent professionals

But, when he goes to Aso Rock and sees corrupt politicians, He faints! 😆

Fraud ain't good at all, but EFCC should apply the same intelligence they apply in capturin these Boyz to our politicians. The biggest fraudulent practices is in the government.. Even the EFCC chairman knows..


It is all they know, it is how you raised them. A country where criminals are lawmakers, crooks are judges. That society has no moral rights to blame the youths that they did not train in the first place, their role models are scammers in politics and all they were taught is get the money anyhow if you want to earn respect in the society and that's why they are doing everything to belong. Una go arrest tire until the leadership begins to do the right thing and stop placing money above morality.

They should build more prisons because youths are hopeless in this country , what this country has done to its youths is unfair , you Can't arrest all of them, even that street you raided today if you go back there you will arrest more than 100, Nigeria should release this children apologize to them for failing them and rehabilitate them , give them payable job then watch this crime die a natural death .. If not done very soon the govt will see their own karma visiting them., there will be heavy revolution even efcc will not be spared , I saw this in my dream where they started lynching Efcc official just like SARS and there was riot every where , Government do something now before is too late .. Thank you just an opinion of a humble writer


It's like efcc was created for yahoo boys Only.

Good job EFCC, but also go after the people syphoning our common wealth as well.

Leave Yahoo boys alone and give us the names of those that have been sponsoring Boko boys and bandits in Nigeria.
If you can expose these fraudster why can't you expose as well those sponsors. Is it because they are from a certain part of the country or are they untouchable?
Was EFCC established for a particular region in the country?
Wetin de worry una self?

The only thing you do is arrest, have the ministry in any way tried to advice Federal government the causes of high rate of this crime in Nigeria and some way forward?Its clear and every sensible person can understand the unemployment level among the youth in Nigeria.

Good job ... I think the corrupt politicians are the ones that own the system ... Efcc are employees ooh ... May GOD HELP US ALL

There was an allegations against NFA/ NFF chairman with facts and evidence against him.
You people are just deceiving yourself.
Not Nigerian youth anymore.

Nothing last forever.
Is only the poor and the less privileged people that EFCC are intimidating...
Shame .
What a shame.
We are wiser now.
So help us GOD amen

By the time EFCC finish putting all our youths behind the bar, and nobody left to uphold the future of our nation then they (EFCC) will rest.

Thanks EFCC ! Please help sanitize our streets. The scamming is too much !

Southern re the problems of this country, Is the only region that has criminals in every household. Its famously known as a den of fraudsters,armed rubbers,kidnappers,freedom beggar, drug dealers.


You are doing your job good , but why the bursting of people houses and hotels …. Why can’t you get a warrant and go for arrest …are you guys above the law of making arrest with warrants ….

When will EFCC start jailing all these politicians that destroyed Nigeria? Or is it only yahoo boys they are empowered to arrest?

But we never see pictures and such sensational stories about fraudulent politicians and security officers who you've got same "actionable" intelligence about.

So EFCC should stop using stories of these small fry fraudsters to play to the gallery. It's really becoming an eyesore.

Leaving the substance of corruption and giving its shadow such a hot chase doesn't signify you're doing as well as you want to make the public believe.


Economic and Yahoo commission..... Una go suffer for 600years, Deal with politicians and leave boys alone


Why not show them on their faces to everybody to no them it will help because society no them in person

Efcc is a scam they are chasing shadows while the real thief is cooling off in luxuries and untoucheable.

FRAUD: Pantami Accepted FUTO Fraudfessorship Before it Was Offered!

FRAUD: Pantami Accepted FUTO Fraudfessorship Before it Was Offered!

By Farooq Kperogi


I woke up a while ago to these memos from FUTO. The appointment letter that offered Pantami a fraudfessorship is dated August 20, 2021 BUT the acceptance letter is dated March 30, 2021!


In other words, Pantami accepted a fraudfessorship that hadn't even been formally offered, and then FUTO retroactively offered it.


At this rate, are we even sure that FUTO's Department of Cybersecurity isn't actually the Department of Cyberfraud? Even at that, Pantami won't be qualified to be a professor of practice in cyberfraud because he obviously can't even successfully pull off a simple fraud.


Yesterday, a young cyber sleuth by the name of Dr. Abdulaziz Tijjani discovered that Pantami edited his Researchgate profile to lie that he was an Associate Professor at the Islamic University of Madinah during the two years he taught there, but Pantami forgot that in all the garbage-in-garbage-out journal articles he wrote for predatory journals during his time there, he gave his position as Assistant Professor.


That's an embarrassingly criminal lie, especially for someone who owes his claim to fame to religious piety. This fraud is becoming both multifaceted and deeply distressing!

I woke up a while ago to these memos from FUTO. The appointment letter that offered Pantami a fraudfessorship is dated August 20, 2021 BUT the acceptance letter is dated March 30, 2021!

EFCC Closes Case in N93.8m Contract Scam in Maiduguri

EFCC Closes Case in N93.8m Contract Scam in Maiduguri







The ongoing N93, 800,000.00 (Ninety Three Million, Eight Hundred Thousand Naira) fraud trial of one Mohammed Suleiman Gumsuri before Justice Umaru Fadawu of the Borno State High Court, Maiduguri continued today, September 20, 2021 as the EFCC closed its case against the defendant after the testimony of the 4th prosecution witness.

The defendant allegedly obtained the N93.8m on the pretext of supplying non-food items to ‘‘Save The Children’’, a Non- Governmental Organization.

At the resumed hearing today, the PW4, Ali Shettima Mohammed, who is the complainant, while being led in evidence by the prosecution counsel, Mukhtar Ali Ahmed told the court that he gave the defendant the entire money involved in the case to execute the purported contract.

According to him, ‘‘the defendant approached me and requested funds to execute a contract awarded to him by a Non- Governmental Organization with the agreement that I will get 30% of the profit of the contract.

“Both parties agreed and signed a ‘‘Memorandum of Understanding’’ that the monies I gave out for the contract will be paid after two weeks. However, with the expiration of the two weeks another one month was agreed upon, which the defendant failed to comply with.

“After making efforts to recover my money, I went to the NGO, ‘Save the Children’ in order to inquire about the said contract and I was informed that there was no such contract.’’

While being cross examined by the defence counsel, M.H. Abubakar, PW4 said the 30% as agreed by both parties is beneficial to him and the defendant.

Prosecution counsel, Mukhtar Ali Ahmed informed the court that the ‘‘PW4 is the last witness to be presented by the EFCC’’, and prayed the court to give a short date for the defendant to enter his defence.

Justice Fadawu adjourned the matter till October 14, 2021 for the defendant to enter his defence.

Igbo Youth Organizations Pledge Support to EFCC in Enugu

Igbo Youth Organizations Pledge Support to EFCC in Enugu









A group of youth organisations in the Southeast comprising the National Association of Nigerian Student, NANS, National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Youths, today September 17, 2021 pledged their support for the fight against economic and financial crimes in the southeast region. They made the pledge during a visit to the Enugu Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC.

The leader of the delegation and Vice president of the NYCN, Comrade Innocent Nduanya, who thanked the Zonal Commander, Oshodi Johnson for receiving them at short notice, said the groups were in Enugu to deliberate on issues affecting the welfare of youths in the south east and thought it wise to visit the EFCC to pledge their support. “You are a young man like us and one of our own. We are well meaning Nigerian youths who hate corruption and are trying our best to see that it ends in Nigeria. Our reason for coming to Enugu is to deliberate on issues pertaining to the welfare of the youths in the South east,” he said.

Comrade Darlington Ugwuegbe, the State Secretary of NYCN and coordinator of NANS zone B as well as convener of the GBURUS CARE Initiative, reiterated the groups’ willingness to fight corruption and other social vices in the Southeast. “I am at the forefront of moral rejuvenation among youths. I believe that the youths must know that corruption will lead the nation nowhere. We are law abiding citizens. We hate fraud and related offences and can never be party to it,” he said.

The Zonal Commander, Oshodi Johnson, thanked the groups for embracing the fight against economic and financial crimes. “On behalf of the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, I want to appreciate you for coming to see us this evening. I see your passion in trying to see that corruption is reduced to its lowest in your lifetime. I congratulate you on your integrity because it takes an innocent person to boldly visit the EFCC. You are representing the conscience of your people and I want to thank you for your willingness to own this anti-corruption fight. Indeed if we allow corruption to keep gaining grounds in our nation today, there will be no sane society to bequeath to our children,” Oshodi said.

He urged the delegates to key into the whistle blowing policy of the Federal Government as a means of checking corruption, assuring them that their identities would be protected.
