Former handler of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Twitter account, Olufemi Adeyemi, has joined Union Bank.
Unlike at EFCC where Adeyemi’s identity was a well-guarded secret, Union Bank is already using its new handler’s star appeal to attract new customers and win back old ones.
A 2006 computer science graduate of Covenant University, Adeyemi worked at the EFCC from November 2014 to July 2017.
His razor-sharp wits endeared the anti-graft agency to thousands of Twitter users.
With a number of rap songs to his credit, not a few thought Adeyemi would go into music full time.
Explaining his decision to quit, the EFCC said in a statement that “Adeyemi harboured personal dreams even before assuming duties at the Commission and he has now decided to fulfill those dreams.
“Like a parent that finds joy in seeing a child grow, we are happy for Adeyemi because the Eagle must be allowed to soar.
“And, like the Eagle that always maintains its nest, Adeyemi’s home remains the EFCC.
“The world and Twitter have certainly not seen the last of ‘The Handler’”.
