The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has detained a man named Kayode Cole for issuing a death threat against its Chairman, Ola Olukoyede. Cole was apprehended in the Lugbe area of Abuja after making the threat on his Instagram handle, “1billionsecretss,” in response to a post by Instablog9ja on February 1, 2024.

The EFCC released a statement on its official account, stating that its operatives arrested Kayode Cole on March 18, 2024. The agency revealed that the death threat was made through his Instagram page while commenting on a story posted by Instablog9ja. The post by Instablog9ja highlighted the EFCC’s findings on money laundering activities involving religious groups in Nigeria.

In his comment, Cole stated that the EFCC Chairman would be dead in six months. During interrogation, Cole claimed that he was simply seeking attention, or “chasing clout.” The EFCC will hand him over to the appropriate authorities for further investigation and prosecution.

It is important to note that the EFCC’s efforts to combat financial crimes and corruption in Nigeria have led to significant achievements. The agency continues to work diligently to ensure a transparent and accountable society.

The incident involving the death threat against the EFCC Chairman highlights the importance of responsible use of social media platforms. It serves as a reminder that online behavior has consequences, and threats of violence are taken seriously by law enforcement agencies.

The EFCC remains committed to its mandate of fighting economic and financial crimes in Nigeria. The agency will not tolerate any form of intimidation or threats against its personnel or leadership. The arrest of Kayode Cole sends a strong message that such behavior will be dealt with according to the law.

As citizens, it is crucial that we express our opinions and concerns through lawful and peaceful means. Threats, whether online or offline, have no place in a civilized society. We must work together to promote a culture of respect, accountability, and transparency.
