The Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, declared that the commission’s newly launched App, Eagle Eye, represented a new experience in information sharing and crime reporting between the public and EFCC.
According to Bawa, EFCC chairman made the declaration while unveiling the App, which he said was the first of its kind by any law enforcement agencies in Nigeria designed to ease the process of reporting economic and financial crimes in the country.
“For us at the EFCC, this event is unique in several ways. First, it is the first of its kind by any law enforcement agency in Nigeria. Second, it is the product of ingenuity by a staff (member) of the commission being an application that was conceived, designed and developed by EFCC, the chairman said.
According to him, the development of the App was a demonstration of his pledge on the assumption of office to run EFCC that was technology-driven.
“The Eagle Eye represents a new experience in information sharing and crime reporting between the public and the EFCC,” Bawa said.
He added that apart from complementing the existing channels for reporting economic crimes to EFCC, the App’s unique advantage is that “it eliminates direct person-to-person interface in the reporting process.”
He further informed that the application also guaranteed anonymity, which he said was an added incentive to effective whistleblowing.
“With the App, those who hitherto were afraid to report corruption cases to the commit either for fear of being identified by culprits or having their identities revealed, can now do so with the assurance of full anonymity.”
Bawa then appealed to Nigerians to take advantage of the Eagle Eye App to report cases of corruption and economic crimes to EFCC, particularly cases of money laundering through real estate.
According to the chairman, “with the Eagle Eye, Nigerians and non-Nigerians can easily take a picture of a property suspected to have been fraudulently or corruptly acquired and report through the App seamlessly.
“With the Eagle Eye, you have at your fingertips a device that will ultimately ensure that there is no hiding place for the corrupt in Nigeria.”
Bawa then urged the media to help in bringing the knowledge of the Eagle Eye App to the public as well as make use of it and help others to understand how to it could be deployed in the fight against economic crimes.
