Senator, Dino Melaye has expressed disappointment over the arrest of blogger, Abubakar Sidiq Usman by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as a result of alleged cyber stalking. Melaye argued that EFCC should arrest people only on issues bordering around financial crimes. The Senator, who has been on vacation in US said this on his Twitter handle.
“It is ridiculous for EFCC to have arrested Abu. I’m a member of the Anti Corruption Committee of the Senate. Sad I’m not in the country.
I don’t know why EFCC arrested him, but if it is over a write up and not financial crime, Please petition d senate. Nigeria is not a banana.
We must safe guard this democracy we fervently fought for. No institution of government should act in a draconian manner. I’m interested.” He said.
