The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says its focus is shifting from enforcement to crime prevention.
This statement was made by EFCC spokesman Mr Wilson Uwujaren, who was speaking at a one-day workshop for journalists on Financial Crimes Reporting in Lagos.
Mr Uwujaren who was representing the acting Executive Chairman, Mr Abdulkarim Chukkol, said the essence of the workshop was to enable journalists covering the commission to key into the fight against economic and financial crimes and to update them on the commission’s activities.
Three papers were presented at the workshop.
The first two focused on understanding the new money laundering laws in relation to designated non-financial business and profession, as well as investigative journalism and the fight against money laundering.
The final presentation was on new trends in cybercrime and how to avoid becoming a victim.
