The Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC, have rebuffed reports claiming that its chairman Mr. Ola Olukoyede labelled 70 per cent of Nigerian university students as internet fraudsters.

Olukoyede was quoted to have said “it is worrisome that seven out of 10 students today are involved in cyber crimes.”

However, the spokesman of the anti-graft agency, Dele Oyewale, in a statement on Thursday, insisted that the statements of Olukoyede was misinterpreted.

According to the spokesman, the EFCC boss never “seven out of 10″ Nigerian students are criminals.”

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes, EFCC, has been drawn to some needless misrepresentation of the concerns of the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ola Olukoyede to the rising incidences of internet- related crimes involving youths across the country.

At a recent meeting with some representatives of Civil Society Organisations, Csos that paid him a courtesy visit, he called for wider media enlightenment of youths as a counter- measure against the menace of internet fraud. He did say that reports and intelligence available to him indicated that, unless this trajectory of youth involvement in internet fraud is addressed and reversed, the future of their leadership of our great nation may be threatened and if it continues in the next 10 years, 7 out 10 of our youths may be getting involved in cybercrimes. At no time did he say that “seven out of 10″ Nigerian students are criminals”. His concerns still bother on breaking the jinx of mass indulgence of youths in cybercrimes.

The EFCC wishes to assure the public that Olukoyede is doubly committed to the progress of Nigerian youths and this underscores his calls for collaborative interventions in offering them more productive and sustainable alternatives.

That automatically qualifies them to become president of Nigeria. Past and present will attest to this.
