The international criminal police organisation, (Interpol) has provided the economic and financial crimes commission, (EFCC) with an application that will enhance intelligence sharing in the tracking of organised crimes, including money laundering and terrorism-financing.
The Interpol, which receives billions of information yearly, will assist the anti-graft agency to set up a data base.
The system will help to detect and interdict stolen and illicit funds by criminals.
A statement by the acting head of media and publicity, Mr. Tony Orilade, said the acting chairman of the commission, Ibrahim Magu, witnessed the demonstration of the new application at the EFCC’S headquarters in Abuja.
The application comprises a database to be supervised by the National Central Bureau (NCB), which is an interface between Interpol and national law enforcement agencies of countries through 24/7 Gemini project global communications system. The application will be managed by its information and communications technology department
