“We don’t collect money before releasing suspects from detention” – EFCC says

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has stated that it does not charge a fee to release imprisoned individuals to lawyers or family members.

The commission’s acting commander, Ibadan Zonal Command, Halima Rufa’u, made the announcement on Wednesday when she met with the executive committee members of the Ibadan branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, led by its chairman, Folashade Aladeniyi.

She cautioned lawyers not to act as “surety” and legal representatives to suspects at the same time.

Rufa’u explained that such an act could not only get them into trouble, but it also does not portray the legal profession in good light.

“In the event the suspect was released and later jumps administrative bail, the Commission will have no choice than to arrest the lawyer first, before going after other sureties”, Rufa’u warned.

On her part, Aladeniyi commended the EFCC for its efforts in curbing cybercrime and related fraud activities in Oyo State.

The NBA chairman said;

“I want to commend the Ibadan Zonal Command and the EFCC at large for its activities towards curbing economic and financial crimes, especially cybercrime in the country. This is evident in the statistics of convictions secured by the Commission over the years”.
