In order to combat all types of cyber, financial, and economic crimes in Nigeria, the French Embassy and the EFCC have finalized plans to work together.

Dele Oyewale, the EFCC Spokesperson, announced Tuesday that the resolution was reached during a courtesy visit by Laurent Baile, the French Minister of Interior and Overseas, to the office of Ola Olukoyede, the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, in Abuja.

While expressing support for the anti-graft agency’s efforts to combat financial crimes and other types of corruption in Nigeria, he mentioned that the French ambassador had urged for collaborative investigations and information sharing with the EFCC.

“Baile congratulated Olukoyede on his appointment and sued for greater collaboration with the EFCC on modalities for tackling cybercrimes and associated criminalities,” portions of the statement said. Topics related to collaborative investigations and information exchange were also covered.

In response, Olukoyede, head of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), reaffirmed his determination to lead the fight against financial and economic crimes with the correct emphasis.

We will not rest until we have ensured that the Commission’s mandate is squarely focused on Nigerians’ best interests. Economic growth, development stimulation, job creation, and the elimination of obstacles to sustainable development are the primary goals of the battle against economic and financial crimes.

He promised that his team will act more professionally and follow the law to the letter.
