EFCC To Nigerians: Be Good Citizens, Report Any Mistaken Bank Alert

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has urged Nigerians to be good and patriotic citizens by reporting any money deposited mistakenly into their various accounts.
The Commission stated this on its facebook page on the heels of one Dr. Aliyu Usman Tilde, an academician, columnist and writer who returned a draft of N900, 000.00, to the Gombe Zonal office of the EFCC.

The amount was mistakenly paid into his account.

Three months after his account officer could not trace the origin of the strange alert, Dr. Tilde reported the case to the EFCC.

Investigation by the EFCC, however, revealed that the amount belonged to a law firm that was counsel to Federal Ministry of Justice in a case that involved a former staff of Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According the a press release, “investigation further revealed that the Clark of the firm made a mistake in writing Dr. Tilde’s firm account number when submitting bank details to the client’s Ministry.

Dr. Tilde raised a draft of the said amount in the name of EFCC EXHIBIT ACCOUNT and brought same to Gombe zonal office. The beneficiary firm has since been contacted.”
