EFCC Warns Skit Makers, Others Against Unauthorised Use Of Uniforms, Symbols

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has warned skit makers, comedians, content creators and movie producers against the unauthorised use of the agency’s branded jackets, symbols, and insignia in movies and skits.

The Commission added that the use of the EFCC brand in such visuals without authorisation is illegal.

The Head, Media and Publicity of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, gave this warning on Wednesday and posted it on the commission’s official Twitter handle.

“The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to the activities of content creators, movies and skit producers who use EFCC-branded Jackets, symbols, insignia and other accoutrements without authorisation,” it said.

While appreciating the desire of those in the creative sector to make movies/skits with plots around economic and financial crimes, it stressed that such operators should seek the Commission’s authorisation, “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.”

Uwujaren added that 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,” he added.
