Nigeria’s  Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC today explained why it arrested Mr. Abubakar Sidiq Usman, a blogger.

The anti-graft agency said Usman was arrested 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.
The suspect has already been offered administrative bail and would be released to his elected sureties.
The arrest of the blogger and the EFCC explanation for it provoked Twitter reactions with some fellow bloggers questioning the agency’s rationale for the action.

Here are some of the reactions:
