Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at the late hours of Sunday raided nightclubs in Osogbo, Osun State and arrested 94 suspected internet fraudsters.

The raided clubs were, Secret Underground, Riverside and Green Arcade all on the Ibadan-Iwo road of the state capital.

19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of sophisticated mobile phones and other items were also seized from the suspects.

A statement by the EFCC’s Head of Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, alleged that the nightclubs were known for hosting parties for suspected fraudsters.

The statement said: “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.”
