The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibadan zonal office, on Wednesday, arrested 30 suspected internet fraudsters in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
The suspects were apprehended at different locations within the city during an early morning raid carried out by operatives of the anti-graft agency.
The agency said the raid was sequel to a deluge of intelligence reports on how the suspects have defrauded many people using the internet.
Aged between 18 and 27, 11 of the suspects claimed to be undergraduates, while others said they were self-employed in various vocations.
Items recovered from them include eight exotic cars, laptops, mobile phones and several documents suspected to contain information used to access their victims.
The suspects are already providing useful information to aid further investigations, the EFCC says, adding that “they will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
