No fewer than eighty suspected internet fraudsters have been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Operatives of the Ibadan Zonal Command confirmed the development on Saturday
The suspects were arrested in a sting operation carried out in both Ibadan, Oyo State and Ondo State.
The anti-graft agency said 41 suspects were arrested in Akure, the Ondo State capital while 39 were arrested in Oyo State.
The suspects who claimed to be undergraduates of different tertiary institutions in Ibadan were arrested at the Apete area of the Oyo State capital, following useful intelligence on their cyber-fraudulent activities.
However, following analyses carried out on their devices, incriminating documents, and messages of their fraudulent bank transactions were recovered from thirty-four of the suspects.
Five exotic cars, mobile phones, and laptops are among the items recovered from them.
The Commission added that they will be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.
