The Nigeria Police has unveiled a Cybercrime Reporting Web Portal that will enable prompt investigation, arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of cybercrime and other related offences across the country.
This is contained in a statement by the Force Public Relations Office, Mr Frank Mba in Abuja.
According to the statement,
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 cyber crooks and offer tips on how citizens can 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.
Meanwhile, three suspects were arrested following Intelligence report received from the INTERPOL Cybercrime Directorate in Singapore on global attacks by Nigerian cyber gangs who engage in mass email phishing campaigns and distribution of malwares aimed at stealing authentication data from browsers and email headers.
The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu reaffirms the commitment of the Nigeria Police in protecting the cyber space and bringing all cyber criminals to book.
He reassures confidentiality of all reports and complaints made to the Police through the cyber portal.
