The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has taken to social media to educate the populace on the proper way to write a petition to the commission.
In a post via its Facebook page, EFCC noted that lots of petitions they receive are not drafted well or written. They proceeded to show the proper way the petitions should be written.

The Executive Chairman of the Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa explained that the App, which is the first of its sort by any security agency in Nigeria, was regarded as a product of inventiveness by EFCC personnel, as an application that was created, built, and produced by the Commission.
He also added that there are penalties clearly dictated in the laws for making false statements that could misinform the Commission.
Bawa said: “The Eagle Eye represents a new experience in information sharing and crime reporting between the public and the EFCC”, with the App, those who hitherto were afraid to report corruption cases to the Commission either for fear of being identified by the culprits or having their identities revealed, can now do so with the assurance of full anonymity”.
“With the Eagle Eye, Nigerians and Non Nigerians can easily take a picture of a property suspected to have been fraudulently or corruptly acquired and report through the App seamlessly. With the Eagle Eye, you have at your fingertips a device that will ultimately ensure that there is no hiding place for the corrupt in Nigeria”,
