EFCC Chairman cautions students against internet fraud


Abdulrasheed Bawa, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has cautioned students against internet fraud.

The chairman, represented by EFCC Secretary, George Ekpungu gave the charge at the inauguration of the Zero Tolerance Club at Baze University, Abuja.

Bawa buttressed that “the penalties of internet crimes are stiff” and enjoined students to avoid temptations that may lead them to crime and jail.

“Romance scams, business email compromises, hacking, impersonation, forex scam and others are corrupt practices and must not be found among you,” he advised.

The chairman urged students to direct their energy on worthwhile endeavours rather than using questionable methods and defrauding others.

Mani Ibrahim Mohammed, the registrar of Baze University, also urged students all around Nigeria to stay away from crime and criminal activity.

He noted that while honesty may not immediately provide large sums of money, it does set people on the path to success.

“Money always comes, it may not come in your early life. But if you work hard with integrity, you will make more money than you ever believed,” he advised.
