On Sunday, Babatunde Irukera informed the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that enforcement would commence soon.

The committee has been tasked to come up with rules money lending companies must obey.

They will shut businesses and engage App stores to shut down applications that are infringing and abusive.

“We are also going to be writing interim regulations and some basic information for all these money lenders to provide information so that people will know who they are.

“Some of them are just Apps that we do not even know who the promoters are. We are going to provide certain frameworks for them to comply with‘’, he Irukera added.
