CRIME: Tracking stolen funds made easy as Interpol hands EFCC App

The job of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has just been made easier after the anti-graft agency was presented with an application that tracks stolen funds.

The application which will enhance intelligence sharing in the tracking of organised crimes, including money laundering and terrorism-financing was provided by the International Criminal Police Organisation, (Interpol).

According to Mr. Tony Orilade, the Acting Head of Media and Publicity, in a statement, the Acting Chairman of the Commission, Ibrahim Magu, witnessed the demonstration of the new application at the EFCC’s headquarters in Abuja.

The statement issued by Orilade added that: “It is a move that aims to detect and interdict stolen and illicit funds by organised criminals, mainly in the area of terrorism-financing, such as in the manner that it happened in Libya.

“She explained that the project will see to the training of the Commission’s operatives on programmes that include Interpol policing capabilities and standard operations.

“The training will commence after the installation of the National Central Bureau (NCB) database.”

According to Amer, the NCB plays an integral role and was at the heart of Interpol in terms of information gathering and sharing.

She said: “NCB is the cornerstone of the Interpol in liaising with the law enforcement agencies of other countries, especially in terms of cross-border investigation, operations and arrest.

“NCB serves as a tool for timely dissemination of information. The Interpol will equip the NCB with the necessary equipment to go with i247 extensions. The i24/7 accommodates IT database,” the statement added.
