The Nigeria Police Launch Cybercrime Reporting Portal

The Nigeria Police, in a bid to exterminate cybercrime from the system, has launched a reporting portal

OpenLife Nigeria reports that the unending cybercrime in Nigeria has necessitated the launch of a cybercrime reporting portal by the Nigeria Police Force.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba

The statement reads:
“The Nigeria Police Force has unveiled a Cybercrime Reporting Web Portal. The portal which can be accessed by clicking on the link is part of efforts directed at ensuring ease of crime reportage by members of the public to enable prompt investigation, arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of cybercrime and other related offences.

“The portal caters for complaints pertaining to cybercrimes. With this, victims/complainants can now report cases of cybercrime online, at any time and from any part of the world. The cases are promptly attended to by the Cybercrime Unit of the Force domiciled with the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB), Force Headquarters, Abuja and the newly created Cybercrime Unit at the INTERPOL Annex, Alagbon Close, Ikoyi, Lagos.

“The new portal will provide updates on achievements being recorded by the Nigeria Police and will, among other things, avail the citizen’s knowledge of basic cyber-related issues such as emerging cybercrime trends, the modus operandi of the cyber crooks and offer tips on how citizens could make themselves less vulnerable within the cyberspace.

“The Force urges potential users of the portal to ensure that only correct and accurate information, devoid of deliberate falsehood, misrepresentation and misinformation, are provided when filing their complaints.
