About ninety-four young men suspected to be internet fraudster have being arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC.
The boys were arrested on Monday, October 14,2019 during a raid at a nightclub based in Osogbo.
The EFCC made this known in a statement it released through its Twitter handle on Monday.
The commission further disclosed that about 19 exotic cars, laptops, mobile phones and other items were recovered from the suspects.
The statement made by the commission reads, “The raid led to the arrest of 94 suspects and confiscation of 19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of sophisticated mobile phones and other items. Popularly known as ‘Club Secret Underground’, the nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway of the Osun State capital.”
“The wee-hour operation was sequel to an intelligence report hinting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party for Sunday, October 13, during which some of them intended to celebrate their loots.”
“A discreet operation on the club had earlier been carried out to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence. The confirmation, therefore, led to the mega raid effected this morning.”
