The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) chairman, Ola Olukoyede, has labelled 70 per cent of Nigerian university students as internet fraudsters.

According to a statement on the anti-corruption agency’s X page, the EFCC boss disclosed this while speaking on Monday with a delegation from Daar Communication PLC at EFCC headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.

Mr Olukoyede had described internet-related crimes as a menace and cankerworm in society.

“It is worrisome that seven out of 10 students today are involved in cyber crimes,” he stated, indicating that 70 per cent of Nigerian university students are estimated to be involved in internet fraudulent practices.

The EFCC boss decried the number of students trained to be leaders of tomorrow engaging in internet fraud. He called on the media to assist in enlightening the Nigerian youths to refrain from cybercrimes.

“These are the youths we are preparing to be leaders of tomorrow. The media should not relent in enlightening them on the evils of such criminal practices,” Mr Olukoyede said.
