The Nigeria Police Force has unveiled a platform for reporting cybercrime.

NPF says the platform is in its bid to reinforce its commitment to tackling digital threats.

The new portal, managed by the NPF National Cybercrime Centre is now accessible with a new site replacing the old site.

The Force spokesperson, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

The statement read, “The Nigeria Police Force is pleased to inform the general public of the launch of a new, more robust, and secure domain for reporting cybercrime-related offences as part of the continued commitment to combating cybercrime and enhancing the safety and security of our digital space.

“The new reporting platform, managed by the NPF National Cybercrime Centre (NPF-NCCC), can be accessed at: [https://nccc.npf.gov.ng/ereport/signin]. This upgraded domain replaces the previous site [https://incb.npf.gov.ng] which must be discarded.”

The statement stated that the upgraded domain offers enhanced security to protect user information and is user-friendly for efficient reporting.

Additionally, it featured improved tracking and response mechanisms for timely action on reported cases, and it urged the public to utilize this platform to aid in the fight against cybercrime in Nigeria.

“The upgraded domain includes enhanced security measures to protect user information and ensure confidentiality and is user-friendly for easy and efficient reporting of cybercrime incidents.

“It also includes improved tracking and response mechanisms to ensure timely and effective action on reported cases.

“The Inspector General of Police urges all members of the public to utilize this new platform for reporting any cybercrime activities as vigilance and prompt reporting can significantly contribute to police efforts in tackling the menace of cybercrime in Nigeria, and even beyond,” it added.
