The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, has directed that sting operations at night time be stopped in all the Commands of the EFCC.
The order is in line with the newly-reviewed procedures on arrest and bail of suspects.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by Dele Oyewale, Head, Media & Publicity, EFCC.
According to the statement, Olukoyede “gave the directive in Abuja on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 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.”
