According to a statement issued by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday, the agency’s Ibadan Zonal Command arrested 40 suspected internet fraudsters in Abeokuta, Ogun State. The arrest was made on Wednesday after the agency received intelligence on the suspects’ alleged cyber fraudulent activities.
The EFCC operatives recovered several items from the suspects, including seven exotic cars, mobile phones, laptops, PlayStation video games, Apple wristwatches, and charms. The suspects have reportedly provided useful information to the agency and will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
