The EFCC has issued a warning to Skit and movie producers for the unauthorized use of jackets and symbols.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission () has issued a warning to content creators, movie and skit producers.

The EFCC warned manufacturers against using EFCC-branded jackets, badges, insignia, and other accessories without permission.

Wilson Uwajeren, the commission's spokesman, issued the warning in a statement on Wednesday.

The EFCC issued a statement informing the public that using the EFCC brand in films without permission is prohibited.

“While the Commission appreciates the desire of some creative sector operators to produce movies/skits with plots centered on economic and financial crimes, it is incumbent on such operators to seek the Commission's authorization, including vetting of scenes purporting to depict the Commission's operations, to ensure that false or misleading messages are not passed on to the public,” the statement reads in part.

“The Commission's Public Affairs Department is adequately equipped to work with motion picture practitioners interested in collaborating with the Commission in using films and skits to educate the public, particularly the youth, on the dangers of economic and financial crimes.”

“Anyone found acting contrary to this advisory shall henceforth be treated as an impersonator and dealt with accordingly.”
