The EfCC Chairman gave a strict warning that the penalties against internet fraud were stiff and enjoined students to avoid all temptations that might lead them to join fraudsters. He enjoined the students to acquaint themselves with the Operational Manual for Integrity and Zero Tolerance Clubs which he presented to the school as a guide for the club’s activities.

EFCC’s Head, Enlightenment and Reorientation Unit, Hajia Aisha Mohammed, also told the students that the essence of the club was to inculcate virtues of integrity, honesty, discipline, tolerance and patriotism in them.Responding, the Registrar of the University, Mr Ibrahim Mohammed, emphasised the essence of being upright and charged the students to avoid crimes and criminality at all costs.

“You will be able to afford all the things you want and walk with your head high up as an important and respected member of society, without engaging in fraud,’’ Mohammed charged.
