A raid which was carried out by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at a nightclub in Osogbo, Osun State’s capital has led to the arrest of 94 suspected internet frausters.
While eyewitnesses alleged that 45 cars were confiscated in the raid at the nightclub which is reportedly notorious for hosting parties for suspected fraudsters, EFCC’s spokesperson Wilson Uwajuren said 19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of sophisticated mobile phones and other items were seized from the suspects arrested during the raid which was carried out in the early hours of Monday October 14.
The statement read “Popularly known as ‘Club Secret Underground’, the nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway of the Osun State capital.
“The wee-hour operation was sequel to an intelligence report hinting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organising a night party for Sunday, October 13, during which some of them intended to celebrate their loots.
“A discreet operation on the club had earlier been carried out to ascertain the authenticity of the intelligence.
“The confirmation led to the mega raid effected on Monday. The suspects are currently undergoing further interrogation, and those indicted would be charged to court as soon as investigations are concluded.”
