The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) this evening confirmed arresting an Abuja-based blogger, Mr. Abubakar Sidiq Usman, saying that it did so “for offences bordering on cyber stalking.”

“The suspect, who is the publisher of Abusidiqu.com, was picked up at his Kubwa, Abuja home in the early hours of Monday, August 8, 2016 by operatives of the EFCC and is currently being questioned over the alleged offence which contravenes sections of the Cyber Crime Act,” EFCC Head, Media & Publicity Wilson Uwujaren said in a statement.

“The suspect has already been offered administrative bail and would be released to his elected sureties,” Uwujaren added.
