“We are yet to be involved in the case of Hushpuppi, but if they happen to give us this thing (details) we would assist.”

He also said the EFCC is not all about arrest and prosecution of internet fraudsters but, also involved in rehabilitating the suspects.

“We are not all about arresting, prosecuting and chasing of internet fraudsters, and taking away the proceeds of their crime, but we are also trying to see wether we can rehabilitate them.
