The Nigerian financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) is the Nigerian arm of the global financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). Domiciled within the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, as an autonomous unit, the setting up of the NFIU is part of the efforts of the Federal Government in combating money laundering, and financing of terrorist activities in Nigeria.
The establishment of the NFIU is indeed a precondition for the removal of Nigeria, from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) list of non-cooperative countries and territories (NCCTs). To midwife the birth of the Unit, a 10-man Technical Committee made up of representatives from the CBN, NDIC, the private sector, a police officer together with an employee of EFCC was constituted far back in October 2003 to develop a comprehensive plan for its establishment.
The activities of NFIU are covered under the NFIU Act 2018 and Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act 2011 as Amended in 2012.
The core role of the NFIU is that it serves as the country's central agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of information regarding money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
