After causing quite a stir on social media, the Economic and financial crime commission popularly known for kicking against corruption in Nigeria now has a church division in Edo state, Nigeria.
EFCC NOW HAS A CHURCH IN EDO STATEPosted on February 22, 2017
This is the viral photo causing ripples on the internet.
The photo shows a church poster being displayed in Benin City, Edo State, obviously as a way of getting new members and directing them to the church.
However what got people attached to the photo is the name of the church.
It is a known fact that Nigeria is a very religious nation which citizens make a great fuss about religion all the time. Churches are planted in almost every corner of major cities across the country and from time to time, strange church names are seen.
However, a closer look reveals that the church is not in any way affiliated to the anti-corruption body as it is an acronym of its own: “Emerald Fellowship Christian Centre.”
Many social media users have confessed that they were deceived at first thinking the church refers to the anti- corruption body, until they saw its full name.
