The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said that they are set to rehabilitate Nigerians prosecuted for internet fraud.
GoldenNewsNg reports that the programme targets youths that have been convicted for “yahoo yahoo” related offences.
EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa gave the hint during a meeting with Citizenship and Leadership Training Centre officials.
CLTC Director-General Soji Eniade led the delegation to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
The anti-graft chief disclosed he was concerned about the future of young Nigerians.
“I do not derive joy in the arrest, investigation and prosecution of thousands of youths in productive ages, but the job must be done.”
Bawa stated that the system must be concertedly cleansed of all forms of economic and financial crimes.
The rehabilitation will involve psychological approaches to morality and cognitive sanity, literacy skills and work training.
The goal, the EFCC chairman added, is to reintegrate offenders back into society after their jail term.
