The Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has warned Nigerians that “insulting people” on the internet is a crime, noting that they can be Jailed for it.

This was contained in a statement published by the EFCC on Tuesday, by the chief superintendent of the EFCC, CSE Daniel Nwaka.

According to the statement, Nwaka disclosed this while speaking with students of Blossom Academy, Abuja, who visited the commission’s corporate headquarters on an excursion trip.

“Social bullying too is a crime; if you stalk anyone online, it is a crime; if you insult anybody on the internet, it is also a crime, and you will go to prison.

“These days, youths commit cybercrimes because of peer pressure, greed and poor upbringing, but for you, do not follow them because they steal from innocent people, and if you are caught, you will go to prison,” the statement said. It also warned students against examination malpractices and internet fraud.

Also, the anti-graft agency chairman, represented by Chris Oluka, Head of Creative Communications, Assistant Commander of the EFCC, told the students on excursion that committing crimes has legal consequences.

Warning the youngsters against internet fraud, Olukoyede said, “It is good that you know some of these things as crimes as you grow; we want to tell you that committing crimes has its repercussions. Nobody is too young to know about these things. As you go home, tell your parents that you went to EFCC, and they told you that corruption is a crime.”
