The Nigeria Police Force has unveiled a Cybercrime Reporting Web Portal. A portal made to ensure ease of crime reportage by the public in order to enable prompt investigation, arrest and prosecute perpetrators of cybercrime & other related offences.
As disclosed on the Twitter handle of Nigeria Police Force, this portal was created so that cases can be 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.
It also stated that “the new portal will provide updates on achievements being recorded by the Nigeria Police and will, among other things, avail the citizens 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 also encouraged complainants to report cases of cybercrime online, at any time and from any part of the world.
However, 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.
