EFCC arrests 14 suspected internet fraudsters in Lagos
Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested 14 suspected internet fraudsters in Lagos.
The EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, who disclosed this in a statement sent to Ripples Nigeria, said the suspects were arrested following series of intelligence on their alleged fraudulent activities.
He added that they were arrested at 1004 Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos, on February 4.
The suspects are – Akin Abiola Daramola, Stephen Augustine Terungwa, Oluwateru Abiodun Samson, Jeffrey Imariagbe Ehis, Uwajiala Odion Henry, Solomon Abidiran Pelumi, Adebayo Oluwatobi Isaac Olamide and Odunifa Joseph Opomulero.
Others are – Adulkarim Samad Olalekan, Anne Davidson, Ibrahim Enakere Emmanuel, Abayomi Oluwagbenga Olowoake, Israel Jigah Sokoamtu, Oluwaseun Olajuwon Ibrahim and Isaiah Effiong
“They have been interrogated and will soon be arraigned in court,” the EFCC spokesman said.
It would be recalled that a young man jumped to his death from the seventh floor of the high-brow estate during EFCC’s raid on the premises on February 4.
The man, who was not a suspect, was confirmed dead at a hospital he was rushed to by residents of the estate.
