EFCC Disassociates from Fictitious Arrest Warrant Documents
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has distanced itself from a set of documents titled ‘Arrest Warrant Processing,’ ‘Loan Fraud Escalation,’ and others, which have been circulating and making waves.
In response to this trend, the Commission issued a statement through its official channels on Friday.
Warning Against False Claims
The EFCC firmly urged the public to dismiss these documents, emphasizing that they did not originate from the agency. Furthermore, it cautioned loan companies against associating the Commission with their loan recovery efforts.
The statement clarified, “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to some contrived documents on ‘Arrest Warrant Processing,’ ‘Loan Fraud Escalation,’ and others, being circulated by some loan companies, purportedly issued by the Commission against loan defaulters.”
No Arrest Warrants for Loan Defaulters
As part of their clarification, the EFCC emphasized that they do not issue arrest warrants for individuals who default on loans. Therefore, any claim linking the Commission to threats against loan defaulters is false and misleading.
Strict Warning to Loan Companies
The statement ended with a stern warning to loan companies that are attempting to connect the Commission to their loan recovery efforts. The EFCC made it clear that it would take necessary action to bring those engaged in such fraudulent activities to justice.
The Commission’s message is clear: it is not involved in issuing arrest warrants for loan defaulters, and any such claims should be treated with skepticism.
