The Ibadan zonal office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on Wednesday, arrested a 33-year-old property owner, Stanley Ejike Awam, for allegedly harbouring suspected internet fraudsters.
Stanley and 10 other suspected ‘Yahoo Boys’ according to a statement signed by the Acting head, media and publicity, Tony Orilade, were picked up at different locations of the Ibadan metropolis following actionable intelligence on their alleged illegal activities.
Orilade said: “For men of the commission who carried out the arrest it was a daunting task locating Stanley’s six-flat property tucked inside an isolated environment around Ologuneru area of the Oyo State capital.”
He revealed that nine suspects, including Stanley, were arrested at the premises in Ibadan.
Others are Henry Echefu, Usman Mustapha, Adeleke David, Olafuyi Josiah, Shorefire Ayokunmi, Riliwan Ajao, Abulsalam Abubakar and Lukman Salam.
In another development, the EFCC operatives also, on Wednesday, arrested two other suspected internet fraudsters, Adeyemo Muktarh and Bashir Mohammed.
The duo were respectively picked up at Eleyele and Old Bodija areas of the ancient city.
Further investigations on the suspects are still ongoing.
The indicted will be charged to court as soon as possible.
Orilade listed items recovered from the suspects as including three exotic cars, laptops, mobile phones and land documents.
