Lagos - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is providing training for local journalists covering the crime and justice issues in the country.
In a statement, the commission said the initiative was conceived to enhance a better understanding of corruption issues so journalists could report such issues effectively.
About 50 journalists drawn from various print, broadcast and online media houses will initially benefit from the training which has begun in Lagos. The Lagos workshop is held at Westown Hotel in Ikeja.
A similar programme will be held in Abuja before the end of the year.
EFCC confirmed its Chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, will be in attendance.
Apart from media personnel, academics, judiciary and government sector, will attend the sessions.
Established in 2003, EFCC investigates financial crimes such as advance free fraud and money laundering.
