The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) has warned content creators, movie and skit producers to desist from using the agency’s branded Jackets, symbols and insignia and without authorization.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren on Wednesday. The Commission stated that the use of the EFCC brand in movies without authorization is illegal.
The statement reads “while the Commission appreciate the desire by some operators in the creative sector to produce movies/skits with plots around economic and financial crimes, it is incumbent on such operators to seek the Commission’s authorization, including vetting of scenes which purport to depict the operations of the Commission, to ensure that false or misleading messages are not passed to the public.
“The Public Affairs Department of the Commission is adequately equipped to work with motion picture practitioners desirous of partnering with the Commission in using films and skits to educate the public, especially the youth on the dangers of economic and financial crimes. Anyone found acting contrary to this advisory shall henceforth be treated as an impersonator and dealt with accordingly.”
