In line with the newly-revised procedures on arrest and bail of suspects by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Ola Olukoyede has directed that sting operations at night be stopped in all the commands of the EFCC.

He 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.

This was contained in a statement issued by Head, Media and Publicity, EFCC, Dele Oyewale, and made available to newsmen on Wednesday.

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.
