The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has reportedly placed a ban on all visits.

According to a report by Daily Post, the ban is coming following the release of ex-Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro and ex-presidential spokesman, Rueben Abati.

It was reported that the anti-graft agency has also banned suspects and inmates from making phone calls to their lawyers and family member.

It was further gathered that the decision made by EFCC is as a result of numerous solidarity visits to politicians and suspects in custody, including Bala Mohammed and Femi Fani-Kayode.
