Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commssion (EFCC), on Friday 13 December 2019, arrested 29 suspected Internet fraudsters in three different locations in Owerri, Imo state.
They were arrested after the secret services and three days of surveillance in their hiding places in the Malo Lodge of the Courts of Bishops, Umuagu Mbieri and King David Suite in Owerri. Even a 16-year-old university student was arrested during the tour.
The commission believes the suspects used different pseudonyms to defraud their unsuspecting victims.
Five cars including Lexus RX 350, 2013 model, Lexus RX 330, 2009 model, Lexus ES 300, 2002 model, Toyota Corolla Sport and Toyota Camry were seized from them as well as 15 laptops, phones and computer hard-drives.
