EFCC Raises Alarm over Fake Magu Facebook account, Solicitations for Gratification


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC wishes to alert the general public about the activities of some unscrupulous elements who have opened fake facebook accounts in the name of the Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu. The two accounts: https://facebook.com/ibrahimmustafa.magu and https://facebook.com/magu.ibrahim.77 have become  platform for various
unwholesome activities including solicitation for gratification and influence peddling using the name of the EFCC boss.

The public is warned not to respond to any request for friendship and other demands in the name of Magu as the accounts do not belong to him. Also the Commission warns the public to be mindful of telephone calls by persons claiming to be acting on behalf of the Acting Chairman and soliciting for gratification. Such calls/persons should be reported to the EFCC or the nearest police station.

The Commission has consistently maintained that it does not solicit money or gratification of any sort to carry out its statutory duties. The general public is by this release, enjoined to be vigilant and help in unmasking these unscrupulous elements who are bent of soiling the reputation of Magu and the EFCC.

For the benefit of the public, the Commission’s official facebook account is https://facebook.com/officialefcc. The Commission can also be reached on any of the following hotlines: 234-9-9044751 or 234-9-9044752 or by email to [email protected]
