The equipment, Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (F.R.E.D) was presented on Tuesday, August 18, 2015, to the Head of Operations of the EFCC Lagos Zonal office, Iliyasu Kwarbai by acting US Consul General, Dehab Ghereab.

“As we engage in these practices, we needed our counterparts, so the FBI office made an assessment of the prevailing cases of cyber-based crimes which are not unique to Nigeria,” Ms. Ghereab said.

She also praised the EFCC for its professionalism and encouraged it to keep up the good work.
