Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has outlawed sting operations at night time in all its commands.

EFCC Head, Media and Publicity, Mr. Dele Oyewale in a statement Wednesday night said:.

“In line with the newly-reviewed procedures on arrest and bail of suspects by EFCC, the Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Ola Olukoyede has directed that sting operations at night time be stopped in all the Commands of the EFCC.

“He gave the directive in Abuja in reaction to the arrest of 69 suspected internet fraudsters by operatives of the Ibadan Zonal of the Commission in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

Already, many of the suspects duly profiled by the Command have been released, while profiling of suspects yet un-released will be completed, without further delay.

“The Commission wishes to assure the public that it will not relent in its adherence to the rule of law, in the exercise of its mandate,” he added.
