EFCC Warns Against Planned Protest, Cites Security Threats

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has issued a warning about a planned protest allegedly orchestrated by a shadowy group. This group has been actively recruiting young Nigerians, including students, via social media to protest against the Commission’s operations, particularly its enforcement of cybercrime laws.

The EFCC expressed concerns that this campaign, portrayed as resistance to its activities, is a ploy by corrupt individuals under investigation to incite a national uprising, potentially threatening the nation’s peace and security.
