In what appears to be a massive crackdown on internet fraudsters countrywide, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has arrested no fewer than 53 suspects in Lagos, Abuja and Enugu.

All the arrests were made within the last 24 hours.

Some of the arrests came with a touch of drama, with a lady suspect in Enugu trying to flush down the toilet a broken iPhone.

In Lagos, five suspects were caught hiding inside the ceiling of their den. But they were flushed out.

Enugu accounts for the highest number, with 28 picked up in multiple raids.

In Abuja, seven suspects were arrested in two operations in Kubwa and Gwarimpa.

The suspects arrested in Lagos are: Abass Mukhtar, Enitan Adekunle, Olakunle Araoyinbo, Korede Adetule, Christmas Gabriel, Christmas Yole, Christmas Emmanuel and Harrison Obayogbono.

Others are: Victor Kenneth, Adewale Musibau, Oluwajuwon Shofuyi, Idris Abdulazeez, Oyeku Adeoye, Omilana Adeleke, Okeke Chucks, Peters Olamide, Abayomi Jones and Usman Olalekan.

They were arrested in the early hours of Friday, September 27, 2019 at different locations in the Alagbado area of Lagos State, following intelligence received by the Commission about their alleged involvement in criminal activities.

Items recovered from the suspects include charms, phones, laptops and five cars-Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry 2004 model, Toyota Camry 2007 model, Toyota Camry 1999 model and Honda Pilot.
