The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission 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 pretence 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.
