The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Monday arrested Abubakar Sidiq Usman, a blogger, for offenses bordering on cyber stalking.
This was allegedly in connection with an article titled “EFCC Boss, Magu Commences Total War With Core EFCC Staff” on his website leading many to believe it was a move to intimidate the blogger. The post was published on August 2, 2016.
According to the EFCC, Sidiq, an online publisher was picked up at his Kubwa, Abuja home in the early hours of Monday August 8, 2016 by its officials and is currently being questioned over the alleged offense which contravenes sections of the Cybercrime Act.
He has already been offered administrative bail and would be released to his elected sureties.
