The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibadan zonal office, on Monday, October 14, 2019, stormed an Osogbo-based nightclub and arrested over 94 suspected internet fraudsters during a Yahoo-boys party.
The raid resulted in 94 suspects being arrested and 19 exotic cars, laptops, scores of sophisticated mobile phones and other items being confiscated. The nightclub is located on the Ibadan-Iwo Expressway, Osogbo, popularly known as the ‘ Club Secret Underground.
The operation followed an intelligence report suggesting that the suspected internet fraudsters were organizing a night party on 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, therefore, led to the mega raid effected earlier today.
