The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ilorin Zonal Office has arrested seven persons for offences bordering on internet fraud and other fraud related offences. The first four among the suspects, namely: Kayode Obanewo a.k.a Samantha James, Muhammed Ademola a.ka Catherine Smith, Yusuf Rasheed a.k.a Rebecca Moore and Apata Oluwakayode a.k.a Hanna Cole, were arrested on June 11, 2019 at Mandate Estate Phase 2, behind Irewolede area of Ilorin following intelligence reports.



Obanewo, during interrogation from officers of the Commission, admitted the commission of the crime. According to him, "I was arrested on the 11th of June 2019 at Mandate Estate Phase 2, but before the day of my arrest, I met a friend who introduced me to internet fraud. He gave me a laptop which was the reason behind my arrest. I saw one email address on the laptop and started using it to chat with some people at night when I come back from work," he said.



The Commission also arrested three other persons for similar offences in Agric Estate, Ilorin. They are Olorunwa Okikiola, Olurunfemi Olamide and Ogungbemi Sogo. Items recovered from the suspects include, laptops, phones and sim cards of different network providers, among others. The suspects will soon be charged to court.
