3 ICPC Officers Bag Forensic Accountants of Nigeria Certificate

Three officers of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) have successfully completed the qualifying examination leading to the award of certificates as Certified Forensic Accountant (CFA).

The officers who have bagged this certificate include, Adedayo Adeyinka Kayode, CFA, HOD, Investigation, Mbang Okon Esu, CFA, and Joseph Obey Bana, CFA, both of Financial Investigation Unit (FIU).

With this certification the staff are now properly equipped with the requisite knowledge to detect white collar crimes in any organisation. They have also acquired the skills to conduct forensic investigation for successful prosecution of economic crimes, particularly with regard to fraud, which will help in the anti-corruption crusade.

While informing the Commission of their successful completion of the course, Mr. Kayode who spoke on behalf of the officers expressed his gratitude to the Honourable Chairman for making it possible for them to undergo the study, and promised to bring the expertise they acquired to bear on their job.

It is noteworthy that ICPC recognises the importance of specialised skills for the effective execution of its anti-corruption mandate, as such the Commission continually encourages and provides opportunities for staff to acquire such specialised skills.
