How to write a petition to EFCC and ICPC

If you have been defrauded, witnessed any act of corruption or have tips, you can write a petition/complaint to an anti-corruption agency in Nigeria – the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

Follow these simple steps:

  • Address your petition/complaint to the Chairman of the anti-corruption agency (EFCC or ICPC)
  • Add an appropriate title (heading) to the petition/complaint.
  • Give factual details of the event as the body of your complaint – stating what, when, where, who and how including addresses, phone numbers, emails and other relevant information that may assist the anti-corruption agency in locating the entity, person or persons against whom the complaint is made.
  • Attach all relevant evidence, e.g. receipts, photos, documents, numbers, etc
  • Write your name and the date, and append your signature at the bottom of the petition.
  • Submit your petition physically at the anti-corruption agency office near you, through post or via email at or

Do NOT submit malicious petitions just because you do not like somebody or because you have “a feeling” they are corrupt.
