An application (App) “Eagle Eye” to help in the war against corruption has been launched by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC.
EFCC Chairman Abdulrasheed Bawa at the launch, said the App is a clear demonstration of his pledge on assumption of office, to run an agency that is technology-driven.
According to him, “The Eagle Eye represents a new experience in information sharing and crime reporting between the public and the EFCC.
“Apart from complementing the existing channels for reporting economic crimes, the unique advantage of this application is that it eliminates direct person-to-person interface in the reporting process and guarantees anonymity which is an added incentive to effective whistleblowing.
“With the App, those who hitherto were afraid to report corruption cases to the commission either for fear of being identified by the culprits or having their identities revealed, can now do so with the assurance of full anonymity.
“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.”
