EFCC arrests 23 OOU students, 12 others for Internet fraud

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission says it has arrested 34 suspected Internet fraudsters at 21, Sawmill Road Awa-Ijebu, Ogun State.

The suspects who are between 19 and 37 years include  23 students at Olabisi Onabanjo University,  out of which nine were ladies who allegedly claimed to be girlfriends or neighbours of some of the suspects; one was said to be a student of the National Open University of Nigeria, while 12 others are non-students.
The commission said in a statement on its Facebook account that it got wind of the suspects’ activities through a series of intelligence reports alleging that the suspected fraudsters engaged in obtaining money by false pretences through sending emails to unsuspecting victims mostly in the United States while others were engaged in romance scams.

At the point of arrest, EFCC operatives reportedly recovered over 300 SIM cards from them.

Other items allegedly recovered from the suspects were different brands of cars, 18 laptops (nine being of Apple brand), 50 mobile phones (21 Iphones) and two bags of charms.

The EFCC said in a statement that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation was concluded.
