EFCC reacts to rumours of staff resigning to join End SARS protests
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to a rumour that its officer joined the ongoing protest.
A social media report says one Dominic Akpan, allegedly an EFCC officer said he resigned to join the End SARS protests.
Akpan reportedly cited undisclosed “ugly experiences” he had within the commission for his action.
Wilson Uwajaren, the EFCC spokesman, in a statement on Monday, said Akpan was not a staff of the anti-graft agency.
“He merely served as a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member in the Port Harcourt zonal office of the Commission from November 2019 to October 16, 2020, when he completed his national service. He could not have resigned from the EFCC to join the #End SARS Movement.
“The stunt by Akpan is nothing but crass opportunism. And, seeking to achieve his selfish objectives riding on the crest of the popular protests by the youth, clamouring for institutional reform in Nigeria, is a disservice to the EndSARS Movement”, he noted
