Operatives of the Ilorin Zonal Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have arrested no fewer than 62 persons over alleged involvement in offences bordering on internet fraud (yahoo-yahoo) in the state.
The arrests, which were carried out in two separate operations, involved one Raji Wasiu Babatunde whom the commission had arrested, prosecuted and convicted last year.
This time around, the ex-convict was arrested alongside 25 other suspects in an early hour operation carried out at different locations in Ilorin on Thursday.
Following intelligence, the anti-graft men again on Friday, rounded up another set of suspects in their hideouts within the metropolis leading to the arrest of a serving corps member, Salaudeen Muhammed, and 35 others.
Items recovered from the suspects include exotic cars, different brands of phones and laptops, charms, among others.
“The suspects will be charged to court upon conclusion of the ongoing investigations,” the EFCC said.
